DateQuestionAnswer
2010-03-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Fantasy Baseball: Who among the top 30 or so picks will end up being the biggest bust this year (relative to where they are chosen) ??
(dangor from New York)
I just pulled up mockdraftcentral.com's ADP to answer this. I'll go with Mark Reynolds, who can't possibly sustain his performance on contact or fluke SB total.

Man, I am so unprepared for AL Tout tomorrow. (Joe Sheehan)
2010-03-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)If I don't draft Chris Young (the hitter) this season, will he go 30/30?
(Sammy from Tuscan)
Of course he will. And if I draft Mark Reynolds, he'll hit .230 with 15 homers and strike out 300 times. That's just how it works :-( (Marc Normandin)
2010-02-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Pick two of these for my final keepers? Tulo, Adrian Gonzalez, Mark Reynolds. I'm leaning Tulo and Adrian. (already keeping Miguel Cabrera, Lincecum and Kemp)
(malmstorm from Minneapolis)
Tulo and Adrian is how I would pick as well. Reynolds did much better last year than I ever expected him to, but I would have a hard time giving him a keeper pick based off of just the one season. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-29 15:00:00 (link to chat)What happens first. Mark Reynolds average craters into Kingman territory or he learns to make more contact.
(paulbellows from Calgary)
The former. His on-contact performance has nowhere to go but down. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-29 13:00:00 (link to chat)I can't find a site to let me view stats from two specific dates. I'm curious how Garrett Jones' production since his first game this season compare to the rest of MLB. He has to be top 10 in homers.
(Dorn from DC)
He is. He came up on July 1 and since then Derek Lee has hit 24, Ryan Howard, Prince Fielder, and Mark Reynolds have hit 23, and Jones has hit 21. What might surprise you is who is right behind him -- David Ortiz with 20. I wouldn't get too excited by Jones, though. This really seems like a Kevin Maas thing to me. (Steven Goldman)
2009-09-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you as shocked as I am that Mark Reynolds is a 40 homer guy? What do you see for the next few years?
(Rob from Alaska)
Yeah. I figured he would be a high strikeout guy who would hit 28-34 per season in his prime. I don't know if he'll be a consistent 40-HR threat like Adam Dunn (who literally hits 40 per year.. c'mon Adam, only hit 5 more this yr!) or Ryan Howard, but I think the Dbacks would be perfectly fine with 33-36. (Eric Seidman)
2009-08-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)If Mark Reynolds can have a big league career, why can't Kyle Russell, who strikes out a ton but is also leading the Midwest League in homers and playing a mean (as in good arm, range) right field?
(Hongo from Greenville, SC)
Go look up what Mark Reynolds's K rate was when he was in the Midwest League at roughly the same age. It's WAY lower than Russell's. Just like BB tend to go down, Ks tend to go up, so it's Russell's starting point that's such a concern. (Kevin Goldstein)
2009-08-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Joe's article on Mark Reynolds didn't seem too upbeat about his fantasy value going forward - do you agree? Would you be selling high in a keeper league if you could?
(qbroda from Regina)
I've always been pretty low-key with regards to Reynolds because his strikeouts keep him from being consistent. He's managed to pull it off this year though, but that doesn't mean I'm over my Reynolds-phobia. I think you could get a lot back if you sold him high given his power numbers, enough that you wouldn't feel bad if he dipped back down to his previous levels. (Marc Normandin)
2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is Mark Reynolds for real?
(tommybones from brooklyn)
Considering he's striking out in about 40% of his at-bats, I have a hard time believing it will last all year. It's not like he hasn't gone insane with his homers before, so I want to see some more of it before I christen him as consistently useful. (Marc Normandin)
2008-06-27 14:00:00 (link to chat)You don't think Tracy gets traded?
(theguag from Louisville)
I think they need him, frankly, as a matter of handedness and what he gives them and that Conor Jackson and Mark Reynolds do not. It's not a condemnation of any of the players involved, just a reflection of the fact that none of them is perfect, and it would be better to employ all of them to good effect. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Along the same lines as the Tamp Starters question, should I be looking to move one of Chris Young, Justin Upton, or Mark Reynolds? Not only are they all on the same team but they are all right handed making their value run that much closer together on a day to day basis.
(Forden from Alberta)
I'd move Reynolds. His strikeout rate is bothersome, and that's coming from someone with an Adam Dunn t-shirt in his closet. (Marc Normandin)
2008-05-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Joe, Who do you think will have the better numbers from now to the end of the season: Mark Reynolds or Ryan Zimmerman? Thx
(uptick from St. Louis)
Mark Reynolds, who is a more mature hitter in a better environment. A ton of Zimmerman's value as a player is in his fantastic glove. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-04-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Mark Reynolds keeping up his hot start, or will the constant Ks begin to haunt him?
(dootstev from Commerce, MI)
B. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-03-05 13:00:00 (link to chat)Did you forget to rank Garret Atkins in your article today, or do you rank him outside of the top 10?
(Ryan from Santa Barbara)
He just missed, but only because I have a lot of faith in Longoria beating out his weighted mean projection. If you don't think Encarnacion is going to get the PAs that PECOTA has forecasted, feel free to bump Longoria and Atkins up a spot a piece.

It was nothing against Atkins, it's just that third base is ridiculously stacked. Kouzy, LaRoche and Mark Reynolds aren't on it either, and they're better than some of the players on the back ends of other positions. (Marc Normandin)
2008-01-15 14:30:00 (link to chat)What do you expect out of Mark Reynolds in 2008?
(raygu1 from burlington, nj)
I think Reynolds is capable of having some years where he hits for a ton of power and manages to keep his average up high enough to be productive, and others where he strikes out so much that a lower BABIP figure will crush his value. Considering he had a .386 BABIP in 2007, 2008 might be the first we see of the latter if he can't adjust to MLB pitchers faster. 2007 looks pretty flukey to me, considering that figure. (Marc Normandin)

2008-10-13 17:00:00NLCS Game FourDo we have any defensive numbers or scouting reports to go on with DeWitt? If we call that a success, do more teams try to shift guys over -- I know the Dbacks are considering it with Mark Reynolds (who is much smaller than I imagined for some reason.) (Will Carroll)
