Hardy weighs in on Reynolds"He wanted to come back," Hardy said. "The thing is, I think he would have signed for less money to come back here. It will be interesting to see what happens. I think we'll all miss him, for sure.
"I've talked to him, not as much since he signed with them, but I was talking to him a lot before that. There were a lot of teams showing interest in him. And I still thought there was a chance we'd get him back."

I don't like this...not one little bit.

Hardy is mostly positive in the rest of the article, though. Clearly, Mark was not a Duquette guy. We'll never know for sure, but he clearly wasn't in his plans going forward.

Ugh. This move is still very puzzling to me. My gut tells me that there is one more piece to fall somewhere.

People.............this is Duquettes reputation from Boston. Great at X's and O's but not a people person. Gets lots of people furious at him.
I will live with that if we win.................just win baby. I'm tired of being respectable losers.

Its pretty obvious that the Orioles would rather not have Reynolds than to have Reynolds...regardless of the contract or need of a power hitting defensively gifted first basemen. He was a one trick pony that had a power outage by his own standards and kept himself serviceable by taking walks and playing a pretty decent first base (after an atrocity of an attempt at third). The guy is white noise on a winning club and I just don't see why everyone has their under garments in a twist over it.

My guess, though: they want to find a guy who can get on base decently and makes better contact than Mark, but still has some pop. Those guys are out there. I think replacing Mark's OBP is much more essential than replacing his home runs. We hit plenty of home runs last year, but far too many solo home runs.
