I understand what it means, however I do not consider Reyes to be a 5-cat stud. Don't get me wrong, he contributes in all areas, but a 5-cat stud he is not.
it is talking overall, on average against all the other short stops.. come on man get your head on straight.
Sorry, my head is quite straight. When considering what constitutes a 5-cat stud, to me it does not take into account on how he fares on average to other short stops, but rather against all other MLB players. When one calls someone a 5-cat stud, it means that he is a stud when compared to all players, not just players of certain positions. At leat that is what it means to me. Feel free to have your own standards of judgement.
by the way reyes really isnt very far behind tejada in hrs
I can make a similar correlation and state that given where they bat in the batting order of their particular lineup and the type of lineup that they bat in, that Miggy is not all that far behind Reyes in runs. Not that I truly believe that, but 7 homers is a fairly sizeable amount to be trailing by, considering that that number will probably increase. I believe that the 6 homers that Reyes hit this month are a fluke, nothing but a temprorary spike. He is not going to have many 6 homer months.
reyes 298 avg isnt shabby either, that definatly makes him good at that category.
I never said that it is a bad average. It is just fine. However, it is hardly great. Tejada's BA has him in the top-10 of baseball (not just shortstops). It is a far cry from .298.
