How valuable is Mark Reynolds to the Brewers?

Mark Reynolds may not be an All Star, but he's certainly good enough to be a major improvement over what the Brewers had at first base last season.

Strikeouts vs. Productive Out

I use Mark Reynolds of the Diamondbacks as the poster child - are his Ks really any worse than other types of outs? Article is ~ 1000 words. (Link is to my own blog)

Reynolds' Reaction to K is a Whiff of Fresh Air

Interesting story from Yahoo's Tim Brown on Mark Reynolds, his strikeouts, and how he handles it. (Related to another Yahoo MLB story about the increase in Ks overall.)

Move Over, Howard and Reynolds

In 2007, Phillies first baseman Ryan Howard set the single season record with 199 strikeouts. Last season, he matched his record breaking season with 199 more, but moved into second place on the all time list. Mark Reynolds, third baseman for the Diamondbacks, whiffed on 204 different occasions, "besting" Howard. Two months into the 2009 season and Reynolds, despite continuing to fan at a ridiculously high rate, actually has some competition for the throne of punchout king. Chris Davis of the Rangers is only 23 years old and appears to combine slick glovework with raw power. When he connects with a pitch, the ball travels great distances. Already with 12 home runs, Davis has begun to establish himself as a significant slugging threat. Davis has, however, a huge weakness so far in that he is seemingly allergic to actually making contact with the ball. In 170 plate appearances and 158 at bats, Davis has struck out 71 times so far, a rate of 44.9 percent. 44.9 percent! Of his official at bats, Davis almost has a 50/50 shot of striking out.
