Actually, I thought that was the most insightful and coherent thing I've heard from Reynolds in a long time.  The point he made that there will be umpires who blow calls or look to call close ones against Bryce is spot on.  Do any of you think Joe West would not relish calling a borderline strike against him to end a game?  That, and his observations about Griffey breaking in were terrific.  Seriously, when do you think a pitching coach will tell his starter, "If I see you throw a fastball to this kid, you are getting fined."
