I can't see what you posted since I'm at work, but suffice to say, the MLB Radio show I was listening to from 720am to 8am this morning was about 95% Markakis talk, and they all agreed the Orioles made a wise baseball decision, and that Atlanta overpaid because they wanted a Clubhouse Leader.

So yeah, everyone has opinions, and you know what they say about opinions!

People really hate Reynolds that much? Besides being a little cocky and arrogant, I think he does an outstanding job breaking down what's going on and what players are thinking in certain situations. He also does a great job of picking up on the little nuances that occur all the time but often go unnoticed, such as players signaling to each other or opponents chirping at each other throughout the game, story lines to look for later in games etc.

I do think he is stubborn and likes to declare things in a definite matter rather quickly, and rarely every admitting he is wrong. This does annoy me but overall I think he points out a lot of things that as a fan, and as someone who thinks baseball sometimes needs more explanation to help educate novice fans, I appreciate it.

Out of curiosity, which analysts do people actually like from MLBtv?

Also, the graphic is kinda funny...

He's right beneath Hawk Harrelson for me in terms of the worst talking heads in baseball. And he might be number 1 because I rarely have to hear Hawk Harrelson.

I like Reynolds (I think he's funny) and most of them, I just don't take them all that seriously since they have a very one sided perspective on things. There is probably no FA signing they don't like. I think they provide good perspective in some things though.

    • The media has been absolute insane over everything, including the damn number thing. I thought it was funny when Holliday said the right things about Cal Sr. and his Dad, then when continued to be pressed by the press' infatuation with getting his opinion on wearing the #7, he finally told them, "I just wear whatever number they give me!"  That was one of the best passive aggressive responses I've seen to a press corp that can't seem to get enough of what number he's wearing.
    • Not too worried about it.  Matt Holliday went 0 for 7 in his first two major league games.  He knows it’s not easy.   He did go 3 for 3 in his third game, so he can give his son grief now.    
    • I don't know about that. They can't hard throwing lefties either!
    • Matt looked pretty sour last night sitting there in the freezing rain waiting for his kid to get his first hit. But as a parent there is no way you're going to miss that moment.
    • Right on the mark. Good synopsis. And Peralta was absolutely dealing last night too making everyone look bad. That slider was insane.
    • I don't see him seeking out interviews. Like any Dad, he's here to support his son with his family. It's ashamed Jackson has struggled. It's ashamed that every at bat they show his family waiting nervously for him to get off the snide. But, he's a very popular player already who the Orioles decided to give away his t-shirt before he took a major league at bat in Camden Yards. Everything is magnified right now and if anything, I feel bad for his family because they have to hold their disappointment in because they know the cameras are on them at all time. Nobody feels worse for Jackson than his family.  
    • It's unclear what caused the BS between McCann and Adames. I think what Contreras did may be a part of it because McCann was talking to him as well. The way Contreras came out of the dungout when it all started was like a guy who instigated some garbage and wanted to get into the mess, but that's just my own speculation. Hyde said after the game he was going to keep the reason for the beef in house.
