I wonder why he scores every time he gets on base? Hm...
Don't get me wrong. It definitely helps Reyes to have all of the big bats behind him. But his speed is the reason why he scores more than half of the time that he is on base.
i have him in my keeper league. and after last year, i was thinking about not keeping him before this season started.
i was just telling a mets fan, that whenever i look up and see 1-0, mets in the top of the first inning, i know that reyes scored a run 80% of the time. and if he scores early, then i know that he will more than likely score again before the game is over. i just love to see the points sequence develop.
reyes steals second
it is so easy....and he took over the lead for the most points scored in my league earlier in the week with 350 points (pujols has 317).
and he was the only player ranked in our top 30 with a .247 batting average (rollins is there now).
this guy is putting up the same numbes that vlad put up for me last season. 40 plus points a week...30 points a week....8 points a day...and it does not stop. and he is supposed to get better?
the good thing about reyes and his speed is that if he gets on first base, he has the ability to score from first base on a single.
and if he gets on with nobody out (always the case in the first inning)...then we know that beltran, lo duca, delgado are usually good for at least a single...
and i still believe that he did not want to play for bobby valentine and that is why he was always injured a couple of years ago....
