Even though his K's can be frustrating, I love Mark. Always gives 100% effort, always cheering on his teammates, and you can tell he wants to win really badly. That's part of the reason I want him to turn it around so badly, because you can tell he really wants to help the team make the playoffs.

Gotta agree. Everyone has been hard on Reynolds this season, but for me at least, I've felt kind of bad when ripping him. He obviously cares a LOT about playing well and more importantly, winning.

Dang straight. I love seeing this from Mark. Everyone on the board obviously loves this team to death, seeing that reciprocated makes me a fan of Reynolds.

LOVE those post-game comments. My thoughts and sentiments to a 'T'.

So we know Mark is going to be lighter in the wallet after that. Does this crew expand the strike zone on him for the rest of the series?

I don't know, Corn. I wouldn't necessarily assume so, and I'll tell you why. The umpires look really bad here, overturning a call that they had right in the first place. What's more, I have to think that on some level, Bud Selig and company will be embarrassed at having to fine Reynolds for his outburst, knowing that he was right, and knowing that the umpires look like buffoons. If the umps "go after" Reynolds in the next 2 games, it could make an already embarrassing situation for both the umpires and Selig even worse. If I were Selig, I wouldn't want any part of that potential mockery in the next 2 games. I wouldn't be surprised if he has a brief chat with the umps tonight or tomorrow, and reminds them that they are professionals, and that he doesn't want to see them making an already bad situation even worse by targeting Reynolds.

We'll see what happens.

Yup. It's the smart thing for MLB to do. If they fine Reynolds or anyone else, then the issue won't die and it lingers in the headlines. If they just let it go, it'll die and in a week everyone will forget about it. But, that's if they're smart they'll let this thing die.

Selig sucks. Period. The guy is stuck in the stone age. And his lackey Joe Torre isn't helping the sport either. This sport NEEDS instant replay. Game of inches. Get the right calls. Period.

The umpires should only really be there to speed the game along. Instant replay will be there to keep them in line. The umpires union is screwing this sport to high hell.

Win or lose this team has my heart.. My respect level for Mark Reynolds is at a all time high, the guy wants to win, just like all of us on this board. It's hard enough to beat the tigers let alone with the umps even against us. I just wish we could make playoffs and shove right in the rest of the worlds face, cause right now fellas it looks like its us(orioles) against the rest of the league.. We will overcome.
