This poor season was terrible timing for Mark. I wouldn't be surprised to see him sign a 1 year deal, perhaps with us, to try to re-establish some value before signing a larger, long term deal.
It seems like for the last 5+ years since I've really been on Orioles related websites that every time a proven player off a down year is a free agent most O's fans want to immediately sign them to a 1 or 2 year deal with the hopes that he may bounce back. Yet with Reynolds most people want him gone and want to have nothing to do with him. If he was playing great defense at 1B like he currently is and had 30 HR at this point he would have his option picked up for next season. Now, since he is having a down year at the plate, he may sign a 2 year deal worth around 12-15 million which IMO would be well worth it.
