Doug, maybe I've missed it, but what is your take on Reynoso? Have you seen him in person? I am pretty intrigued by him due simply to the fact that he supposedly has elite upside. I like having guys like that, even if they are lotto tickets as opposed to guys with upside of 5th OF even if they are more likely to reach their potential.
