Always like Reynolds.

Speaking of 2nd basemen for dem Os I liked, I always had a fondness for Mark McLemore too.

I recall articles in the News Journal about how he used martial-arts to help his off-season routine and the play above seemed to show that. The idea of a baseball player by day and a ninja by night was a novel idea to this imaginative late-bloomer. See below quote that fed into my perception of him:

The other night, McLemore chased a ball into the right-field corner and made a strong throw to hold Mickey Tettleton to a single. Such plays aren't occurring by accident. They're the result of McLemore's off-season work with martial-arts expert Mack Newton.

:eek: Coooool.

He's leagues better than MaCarver.

Agree. Reynolds is exactly the type of former player "analyst" I can't stand though. Completely ignorant to any statistical analysis and proud of it, even speaking out against things before even understanding what they are. It's incredibly annoying to see people so wrong all the time, but remaining adamant.

Maybe I just watch too much MLB Network.

If you think everyone is ignorant and wrong all the time, don't watch it. Pretty simple solution, really.

Lol: never heard people hate on Tim McCarver???

I am not a fan of Joe Morgan, he gives me a headache.

You've never heard people bag on McCarver? There was a collective "thank god!" from the masses when he announced his retirement! He was okay years ago, but kind of like Madden he started declining rapidly in to obvious and sycophantic commentary.

Reynolds is definitely a step up, but he's kinda like a younger Joe Morgan, so I'm sure his act will get old on the national stage real quick.

You've never heard anyone hate on McCarver, really? That's very surprising.

I personally liked him. Had a great voice and told good stories. I really couldn't care less about the analysis side of things.

Wow, that's quite a leap. I said one guy is ignorant and wrong a lot, and I don't even think it is a very controversial opinion.

I read McCarver's book. it was very good. Listening to him on a broadcast was like having him read his book back to me over, and over, and over, again, and again, and again. I won't miss him. HR on the other hand is an unfunny clown. But no matter I rarely watch FOX anyway.
