Promises kept!
Promises kept!

What a pleasant birthday present the O's gave Earl last night. Good pitching? Check. Good Defense? Check. A Three-Run Homerun? Check! The thought of what this team could achieve if Mark Reynolds hits as he is capable of over the course of the stretch run fills me will glee. He likely won't be back with the O's next season; certainly not at the price of his option. But his bat is quite good when deployed in a platoon and his defense at 1st base has been acceptable. Go on a hot streak, Wrapper, and get yo'self paid next season!
