Mark Reynolds... Stating the Obvious

Postby Verminator » Mon Jun 15, 2009 9:20 pm

According to Matthew Pouliot of Rotoworld...

Not that he's been the game's best player or anything like that, but Mark Reynolds is having a season for the ages. He's on pace for 225 strikeouts, yet he's batting .281 anyway. He's also on pace for 43 homers, 106 R, 114 RBI and 33 steals. There just shouldn't be anyway for him to maintain such a respectable average if he stays on this strikeout pace, and the average seems to be the more likely of the two to drop. It's time to start viewing him as a sell-high candidate.

Ummm... ya' think?

The issue with "selling high" is that my fellow league owners are not dumb. They know a so-called "correction" is coming. They have access to the same information as I do and know he won't keep up a blistering pace. Plus, he'll still likely be productive even if he regresses. I doubt that the guy in my league with David Wright will be willing to take Reynolds in exchange.
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.
