i honestly think picking up mark reynolds is a better option than mike young at this point. youngs d has declined big time and his offensive numbers are pretty average this year. Ideally we bring up boegarts or middlebrooks, but if ben wants to give them more time, pick up mark reynolds. yes reynolds strikes out alot, but he also has something that the sox are missing, right handed power. He has 15 homers, which would rank 2nd on the sox this year. the cost would likely be very low, i for one think he is worth a shot. With the monster in LF, he could do some real damage.
The Indians are in the race and probably arent looking to get rid of their 1b. hes a better 1b than a 3b anyway.
Besides we already have the same player with napoli as far as K's go, except naps has about 100pts on him in OPS. We dont need MR and his .203BA and .307OBP. At least Naps gets on base, has a better SLG and a better BA than MR.
Just saw this on HBT SP.. Looks like the very rare occasion that you are wrong has shown itself..http://hardballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/08/08/indians-designate-mark-reynolds-for-assignment/
With that being said, I still think reynolds is a better option at 3B than Snyder against left handed pitching...
Thanks res. I didnt see that and partially stand corrected.
If the tribe just let him go, thats not a good sign. The fact still remains that MR's numbers are horrible and the Sox would have no use for this guy. Hes a very bad defensive 3b and has looked better at 1b, but we have Naps, who is clearly the better player.
Honestly, with MR hitting .203BA and .307OBP with bad defense at 3b, I dont see him as an upgrade from Holt or Snyder.
