Reynolds needs to go

We can walk away from his contract this winter. Sometimes, your first instinct IS the right choice.

Oh, another big hit for the sheriff or something? 8-)

Also, some more great plays at 1B. That backhand early in the game was a thing of beauty.

I've hated on Reynolds as much as anyone this year, but there's no denying his bat returning is a game changer for this offense. Couple that with some solid play at first base, he could be a real X factor over the next month and a half.

Good lord that was impressive. Pretty hilarious that he went from being so awful to carrying the team in an aspect.

If we can get some production out him down the stretch it will leave better memories when he moves on this winter.

The Red Sox are so petrified of Reynolds they just intentionally walked him with 2 outs and a man on 3rd.

I guess they realize he is the best hitter on the team with RISP and 2 outs. It's a shame that many O's fans don't realize that.

Do you think that's actually the reason? Because they are aware of his RISP and 2 out stats? It's probably just because he's been hot lately.

It's a shame that some O's fans have such obsessive tunnel vision that don't realize what a drag Reynolds can be on the line up when he's cold.

That's LUCK!!!!! Those numbers fluctuate year to year; last year he went .208/.308/.408 with RISP which was below his season line .221/.323/.483...

Props to you and others who wanted to stick with him because he is certainly contributing now but to overreact and suggest resigning him is ABSURD. -0.1 WAR this year, 0.3 WAR last year. The O's can figure it out at 1B next year. He's not THAT good defensively. Fangraphs doesn't think he has good range at 1B as evidenced by his -7 PM rating. They do notice all of the nice plays he does make with their +3 GFP rating (points giving for exceptional plays made relative to the position). I think he's been fine at 1B and will be fine offensively for the rest of the season, lord knows he was due, but there is NO WAY I would offer him anything above $3m for ONE more year this winter (I would greatly prefer to part ways).

...and that would be ONLY after I had explored other options first.
