The O's Trade for Mark Reynolds
I called it last week. Here's proof. I know that I wasn't the first person to bring it up, but I'm still pretty proud of myself since I'm normally wrong on these things. Anyone have a Reynolds autograph that they want to trade? The one up top isn't mine as you can see by the checkoutmycards.com watermark.
To get Reynolds, the O's had to give up David Hernandez and Kam Mickolio. Hernandez has a legit arm and could possibly be a closer for the D'backs while Mickolio wasn't good at much besides being exceptionally tall (he's 6'9") and having awkward mechanics.
I give this trade 3.5 out of 5 O's. The O's needed to do something. The fans were getting restless.
