Mark Reynolds Announces Retirement

Recommended Posts

This man racked up 60 home runs in two seasons with the O's from 2011-2012...  Epic!

(He also went 3 for 25 with no extra base hits and 10 K's in our 2012 playoff run, but that's water under the bridge)

Reynolds, Zimmerman, and Doolittle all played in the same IF at UVA.

He also played with the Upton brothers and David Wright in AAU.

Now somebody post the sunflower gif.

So did everyone else that post season if I remember it correctly...

I always knew he was "complacent" :P

Seriously though, I've always loved the guy since I got him as a fantasy baseball waiver wire pickup during his incredible rookie season. I was thrilled when we traded for him. Best of luck to Mark in his future endeavors. $30 million buys a lot of sunflower seed packets

Despite that I usually thought he was a decent guy.

Reggie just breathed a little sigh of relief, his record is safe for a little while longer.  It continues to amaze me it's lasted this long.  Strikeouts have gone up 57% since 1990, but the career strikeout record holder retired in 1987. 

Justin Upton is the next great hope.  He's 31, and needs 800 strikeouts.  He averages 172 per 162 games, so he'll need another 5+ years to get there.  The odds are against him, especially after a 2019 where he only struck out 78 times in 63 games, and now COVID.

Reynolds does still hold the single season mark at 223.

Remember when the Orioles never had a high K player?  In 1989 the single season mark was 189 by Bobby Bonds.  The's O's record was 125 by Boog in '66.  Then Tettleton had 160 in 1990, and the O's promptly traded him for a bag of magic beans and a stick of gum.  Tettleton is now 11th on the franchise list, Boog 25th.

Mark Belanger once struck out 114 times in a season with 13 doubles and two homers, where he slugged .248.

I really liked him.  Fun to watch and was a key contributor to the 2012 team.  I was there on 9/6/12 when he socked two homers against the Yankees.  Great times.

    • No, but the salary cap makes things very wonky in the NBA and NHL. While the NFLs system really screws over the players. The only way I see the MLBPA giving into a salary cap is if they cut the years of control right in half.  Which would basically change strategy away from developing home grown talent. 
    • I'm over the moon if Tork is available at 2. I get the defensive and athletic upside is limited, but that is such a special bat. .285 and 30 HR annually? Absolutely. Realistically, I wouldn't be upset with either Martin or Lacy at 2. Martin might not project the upside as a traditional 1-2, but there is something to be said for his tools across the board. Pitchers this high make me nervous as well, but a Rodriguez-Lacy-Hall top of the rotation sounds formidable, health permitting. 
    • So, former GM Jim Bowden is now writing for the Atlantic.  According to his research, there were 42 players taken among the 80 players selected in the first five picks of the 16 MLB drafts between 2000 and 2015 and only five of the 42 have justified the selection - Verlander, Price, Strausburg, Cole and Bauer.  Two of those pitchers, Verlander and Strausburg, were "no-brainer" decisions.  It is a hit rate far below WC's opening post.
    • Just keep chucking talent into the firebox and hope that coaching, video, personality tests, wearable tech, organizational philosophy, and the mysteries of the universe  squirt out some rare nuggets at a reasonable pace.
    • Thanks for posting this. I read this Monday and meant to comment to you. Drastically different from BA’s write up that I referenced. Not my critique, theirs. I’ve never seen the kid. I am two years removed from most of the HS kids. I know many of the college Sophomores and Juniors fairly well. I have some info on the Central Florida kids, but that’s about all I got as a personal knowledge base.    I like what MLB wrote about Halpin. If that is what Elias sees, then perhaps he’s higher on the board. I believe Elias May take 1-2 HS kids, at most. Just based on limited data and all. Quite polar reports, but that’s how it goes. One scout sees him on a bad few days. Another sees him on a good few games. What I take from that is inconsistency would make it tougher to draft him unless you are all in on him as an area scout and cross checker.
    • I wish my adhd 9 year old daughter would stop talking jumping and singing Taylor swift and go the ?!?!!??? To sleep or at least go to her room. I might ready the Samuel l Jackson book go the f to sleep! 
    • Well when people say his comp is Mookie freaking Betts, I think people are getting carried away with upside projections. I hope I look back at this post in 6 years and Martin has an MVP and multiple top 5 finishes.
