For better or worse, this has been Mark Reynolds week. Last week belonged to Manny Machado.While his second week hasnt compared with his first, it hasnt been all bad.In his first four games, Machado was 6-for-16 and named as the co-American League Player of the Week. Hes 4-for-17 since and enters Sundays game batting .303 with three home runs and seven RBIs. The three homers and the RBIs were in his first four games.Machado has adjusted well to third base, making an easy adjustment. His only error was the controversial call at first base on Friday night that sparked Mark Reynolds tirade.His arrival means the Orioles are fortified at five positions: catcher, shortstop, third, center and right field. And, he wont be 21 until next July.
Machado's second week not as spectacular
