O's: Reim time
Nolan Reimold made good on my Orioles Xtra prediction tonight that he would hit a home run against Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia. It's a gift, but it doesn't seem to help me at the craps table.
I'd like to see Reimold start getting some regular playing time. He swung the bat pretty good a couple of years ago before he cut the season short to undergo surgery to repair a damaged Achilles tendon. He never really got untracked last year -- for a variety of reasons -- and was the odd guy out this year after a decent spring.
He didn't respond after he was optioned to Norfolk, but he has had some very good at-bats in his limited role up here. The Orioles owe it to themselves to find out whether he can be an everyday player, because he definitely has major league power.
