Braves annoncers said that when Ricky Henderson never drove in over 75 (I believe) rbi during his career. Reyes drove in 81 last year.
Rickey also never had more than 180 hits in a season, something Reyes has done the past two seasons. Reyes is clearly better than Rickey.
Ruth never had more than 17 SB and 16 Triples in a season. Reyes demolished that SB mark and had 17 triples in each of the last two seasons. Reyes is clearly more exciting than Ruth ever was.

I hope he never fixes the problem. Wondering if he will sail the next throw into the third row just adds to the excitement of each play. Its sort of like watching Canseco catch a fly ball or Knoblauch make the throw from second. You never know what might happen, and that is pure excitement.
