Reyes - stealing machine or on-base wormhole

Leadoff homer for Reyes. ;-D

That gives him 34 RBIs compared to Crawford's 36.

He's only batting .277 but that has been on the rise. His BABIP is .300 and I can't see a guy with that kind of speed only have a BABIP of .300.

Should be a late first round pick next year minimum.

yeah all the points everyone is making are good points, but the thing that is impressing me the most this year is the power. what's his max potential for power? can he become a crawford type eventually? or is this just a fluky year in terms of power like when pods hit 15 homers about 2 seasons ago? can he consistently hit between 10-15 homers like furcal and rollins?

if he does show power through the rest of this season, combined with the increased plate discipline, i'd say (still a long shot) he might be a late 1st round pick next year.

I definatly think he could get around 15 homers per year. He definatly has some pop and he is only gonna get bigger and stronger. One think i worry about is when he hits a homer it seems to go to his head and hell swing for the fences the next time hes up, but the way hes hitting i wouldnt worry about it

Reyes scores when he gets on. The 52.5 % rating Verducci brings up was just about the same last season. Its not a fluke. When he gets on, he scores. He may not get on at a .370 rate, but that .3-.4 difference in on base percentage is really not that big of a deal when you factor in how often he scores. Its almost automatic.

Reyes just hit for the cycle! Have I mentioned that he's good?

Fantasy MVP? Quite possible If he keeps up his average and pulls a brian roberts and has 15+ homers

his OBP is up to .348, which is respectable enough. this kid is good.

130 runs, 15hr, 75rbi, 70sb, 280 batting avg.

the potnetial to lead the league in 2 categories while not hurting you anywhere else, from a SS? looks like a first round pick to me.

great point, whenever reyes gets on first he always takes a pitch or 2 and gives reyes the chance to steal, then when hes on second hell normally ground out to the right side at worst allowing reyes to walk to 3rd, then beltran can hit a fly ball anywhere and you know he'll score, its a great thing to watch, especially if you're a mets fan ;-D


I was listening to the fox commentators say how unselfish that he was a few weeks ago. Yes his actions at the plate are key also.

I think in coming years he'll actually approach .320. Even this year I expect him to hit around .300. Jose is becoming a smarter hitter with better plate discipline and already makes great contact. He has a really low BABIP, and with his speed he should have a BABIP around .330-.340 instead of just .305. And his HR/F is up to 8.7%. Lets not forget that he is just 23, and his power is developing. He could approach 20 hr's a year starting next year. ;-D
