also, depending on how you feel about strike outs when creating your lineup (personally, i dont mind them all that much, but im sure most managers would prefer to have guys at least put the wood on it as opposed to striking out once out of every 2.3 ABs), im sure this has something to do with it.
I agree. i don't think this is comparable to the Kemp situation. Reynolds is currently on pace to shatter his own strikeout record with 233
i don't like strikeouts because it guarantees you're at bat was as unproductive as possible. If you at least make contact and put the ball in play, you have a chance to move runners up, have the fielder make an error, find a gap, etc.
