Jose Reyes: Walkin' machine?

Postby DK » Mon May 01, 2006 7:21 pm

With 3 walks last night, Reyes now has 12 walks in his first 24 games. In 161 games last season, Reyes only had 27 walks, but at this rate he'd have roughly 80 by the end of the season.

I'm noticing Reyes is looking at the first pitch a lot more and generally has longer AB's this year. Possibly a trend that will continue?

I hope so. I have definitely noticed him taking the first pitch. Almost too much. I guess it's a fine line between patience and indecision.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Well this game was different. He was cutting at the first pitch a LOT (every at-bat I saw), although he did work a nice 3-2 count that ended in a K.

Great game, though. ;D

Let the BB's keep on comin'!!! ;-D

I believe it was the All-Star break last year, when Reyes drew his 12th walk.

A walk last night gives him 16 on the year in 38 games, a pace for roughly 65-70 free passes. ;D

Any other leadoff man and I'd say :-t but the sheer improvement alone, and the thought of continued improvement = a big ;-D ;-D

21 walks now in 52 games, Reyes is consistently drawing walks at a full-season projection of about 65. ;D

That said he's still only batting .250. :-o

3 walks tonight gives him 26 in 60 games. He is one off from his entire total from last year, in 101 fewer games.

Big props on bettering your discipline, Jose. ;D ;D

Now just hit the ball.

If only it were his birthday every day... :-b
