Despite Baltimore's 13-4 loss to the Texas, the story of last night's game was the power and approach of the third baseman.

I know a lot of fans are not impressed with Reynolds at the hot corner, where he has a league-high 20 errors - obviously, a concern - plus, the umpteen strikeouts and low batting average.
