Is Mark Reynolds An Answer For Sox At 1B?

1B Option For Red Sox?
One of the many interesting moves on Friday was the Orioles non-tendering Mark Reynolds. Obviously, Boston has a gaping hole at first base, and Reynolds—as suggested by the Globe's Peter Abraham—is a tantalizing option. Of course, Reynolds has led the league in strikeouts four different times—with an epic 223 in 2009 with the D'Backs. And last year, he likely avoided the honor only because he logged just 135 games. His lifetime average is an anemic .235—but he has averaged 34 home runs over about six years. Defensively, he won't make you forget Adrian Gonzalez.
