I do not agree with Reyes "by a wide margin"? How is he a 5-cat stud, when Miggy beats him by a rather wide margin in 3 of the cats? Reyes has the edge in steals (a lot to basically non-existent) and runs, but Miggy has the wide edge (it is not even close) in homers, rbi's & BA. If it is an OPS league, the disparity between the two is even greater.
It is not entirely accurate to say that he is fading. This is actually one of his better years. To me, he is still king of the SS crop and easily a top-24 player.
saying a player is a 5 cat player isnt comparing him to the guy who is the best hr and rbi shortstop.. it is talking overall, on average against all the other short stops.. come on man get your head on straight. reyes.. 15 hr a lot for a shortstop (top 7) rbi 66 (top 9) B.A (around top 10) runs (1st) sbs (1st) i dont see how you could say hes not a 5 cat stud? by the way reyes really isnt very far behind tejada in hrs.. reyes 298 avg isnt shabby either, that definatly makes him good at that category.
Since when does being in ninth place at something make you a stud? Also, how many SSs are being used in a normal league? If a league is using twelve shortstops, then being 9/12 isn't too hot.
Reyes and Tejada both definitely have value and aren't too far apart from each other. Also, hindsight is 20/20 right now. Reyes has been healthy so far this season, but there was no gurantee of that in April. Tejada is going to play the season for you while Reyes was a question mark. Sure it looks nice now to compare them, but Reyes was the greater preseason risk. Consistency has value too.
