Oh I agree. Kenny has definitely been told to take it easy on Reynolds. Most baseball fans and MLB Network viewers know very little about sabermetrics, so they are inclined to agree with Harold. The network doesn't want to alienate their viewers by having Kenny rip their baseball worldview to shreds. The show is intended to gently bump the modern understanding of baseball into the public consciousness, not blow peoples' minds.
