That dude will hit between 40-50 HRs in Camden Yards. Nice get for the O's who could use some power in their lineup. :)

And strikeout about 200 times while doing it.

Wouldn't have minded seeing him in LF for us. Probably will be a solid pickup for the O's, 30+ HR hitters don't grow on trees, regardless of the 200 k's.

I actually predict that Reynolds starts to fade with the power #s while continuing the high strike out rate and is out of the league soon. Arizona could protect a hitter like Reynolds, he's not going to get a lot to hit in Baltimore's lineup.

contact-to-damage ratio? I think we might be present at the birth of yet another that long ball fans will love.

Warts and all, I find it almost ridiculous that the Orioles got Reynolds for such a small price.

No doubt about it. His only wart is a lack of contact and though it is a huge wart his defense and base running/base stealing is pretty doggone good to go along with the power. I even seen someone suggest yesterday (think it was Olney or Law) that he could play SS fairly decent. I wonder if the O's are thinking along those lines in the short term.
