Fair point. And I understand he wanted more power, since the OF is a little power starved. My problem with high K guys like Reynolds is that they are too reliant upon luck. If they have an unlucky year, suddenly those 35 HR's drop to 25 - which is hardly enough to justify the AVG vampirism. It's a philosophy difference, I guess: To me, if someone picked him up in the late rounds because they're planning on using him as a backup or CI when he gets hot, no problem. But he's too risky to be an everyday starter, IMO. As something to improve upon, I think the OP would be better served finding a better everyday guy to play 1B and use Reynolds judiciously.
Is K. Morales available? Trumbo? Davis? Lind? Goldschmidt? I'd take the 5 fewer HR in exchange for higher BA. But it's a philosophy difference, I guess.
