Let's all agree Reynolds was a train-wreck at third base last season. But he's lost more than 20 pounds and seems determined this spring to be a better fielder.
Besides, the Orioles didn't sign him to be the next Brooks Robinson. They signed him to hit homers. And he hit 37 of them last year. Assuming the weight loss didn't cut into his power -- that's all the Orioles need: a guy on a diet who strikes out a lot with no pop in his bat -- he'll be fun to watch each time he comes to the plate.
