Mark Reynolds: Perhaps Not As Complacent As We Once Thought

When we last saw Mark Reynolds, he was being complacent and inspiring an internet meme.

With one poorly/perfectly timed mouthful of sunflower seeds, hundreds of photoshops were born:

As it turns out, we may have been a bit premature in our judgments of Mr. Reynolds’s character. You see, recent .gifographic evidence via Orioles-Nation.com┬ádefinitively shows him in a state of non-complacency:

In the ninth inning of Wednesday’s thrilling game against the Red Sox, Nolan Reimold hit a two out double to tie the game at three and Mark Reynolds went absolutely bonkers.

It appears that a mea culpa is in order. Mr. Reynolds, on behalf of everyone who drew conclusions about your character based on a single photograph, I apologize. BUT, on behalf of everyone who participated in perpetuating this meme by photoshopping that image of you into other photographs to humorous effect, I do not apologize. Those photoshops were hilarious.

Bouncing high five to Jordan Tuwiner of Orioles Nation for the master .giffery.

Redemption. And he ONLY struck out 196 times this year.

Having been in attendance that night, it seems that Reynolds can turn the complacency on and off at will. In the top of the ninth inning, the first base umpire mistakenly called Jacoby Ellsbury out at first whereas Reynolds had clearly bobbled the ball. As Terry Francona began to argue the call, Reynolds did a memorable rendering of the ‘complacent seed pose.’

The call was eventually overturned.

I caught him dumping seeds into his mouth at first base during a Jays game. Clearly the man just can’t bear to touch teh seeds with his pine-tarry hands.
