"If Reynolds, who homered in the O's 4-3 loss to the Seattle Mariners Sunday, but is hitting just .198, continues to flail miserably at the plate, he could join John Gochnauer of the 1902-03 Cleveland Indians as the only major leaguers in history to hit below .200 in consecutive years in which they had at least 300 at-bats."
Well, that's something to aspire to.
Buck, with little to no sugar coating: "If a guy is playing well and hitting well, it's not that hard to find opportunities. Jake hasn't made good use of the opportunities he's had, with some exceptions."
"As a team, the Orioles are batting just .193 and have scored nine runs in opening innings all year. Both of those figures are their worst for any inning. The club's .227 average in the second inning is next worst of any frame for the hitters."
Maybe if we could just start the games with a 2 inning handicap on the opposing team...

Some nostalgia to dull the pain of our modern incompetence.
