Again, a sub .700 OPS from your first baseman is not going to cut it. Nice to see him take walks because he certainly has a hard time putting the ball in play. He was 0 for 7 with six strikeouts in the other two games in the series stranding numerous baserunners.

If he was 0-7 with 6 groundouts would you be as hard on him? The entire team strands runners at an alarming rate and Reynolds as I pointed out is arguably the top "clutch" hitter on the team.
No I wouldn't. Strikeouts do nothing for the team. With Chris Davis on second and none out in a key situation on Friday night he struck out. A groundball to the right side would have been great in that situation... He certainly wasn't the top clutch hitter on the team this series. I think he stranded around 5 runners on Friday night over 3 of his at bats (all 3 were strikeouts).
I would definitely give Adam Jones the label of top clutch hitter on the team over Reynolds.
