Mark Reynolds' Golden Sombrero

A golden sombrero is awarded to a player who manages to strike out four times in a single game (real golden sombrero not included). It's quite the feat unless you're Ryan Howard or Mark Reynolds. Unfortunately, cycles and no-hitters are all the rage nowadays. Not for me, though. I will pour over the box scores to bring you the finest at swinging and missing.

Mark Reynolds is my boy. He had a nice fantasy breakout season last year while hitting 44 home runs and swiping 24 bases. He also led the league in strikeouts with 223. He picked up a solid 5 Golden Sombreros last year. He picked up his first Golden Sombrero this season on June 13th. And he didn't waste much time picking up his second. Reynolds went 0-4 tonight with 4 strikeouts. You know what that means? It's time for me to get drunk with my donkey.

I named him Hurradura and we split a gallon of daiquiris tonight. He wants to go to a strip club so let's get to Reynolds' strikeout fest...

Top 2nd: Reynolds struck out looking against John Lackey. Looking? That doesn't sound right. Maybe he was distracted by a vuvuzela.

Top 4th: Reynolds struck out swinging against Lackey. Okay, that's better.

Top 5th: Reynolds struck out swinging against Lackey again. I get that tingle up my spine and ask him for some love.

Top 7th: Reynolds struck looking against Dustin Richardson.

That's just some good looking out. Thanks, Mark. If you could send me some cash, I could get moving on the OffBP Golden Sombreros. Made out of straw. Alright donkey, let's go to the strip club, you're driving.
