For Fans, Jose Reyes Has Been Worth It

Jose Reyes SS NYM – listed in 8 MLB seasons (2003-2010), all as a Met, however, he played just 36 games in 2009 and his first two seasons, 2003-04, he played in 69 and 53 games, respectively. Using the other five seasons, Reyes played in 153 games per season. He used his speed during those years to steal 288 bases, 78 of those stolen back in 2007. Reyes also had 75 triples during that span and averaged a .337 on-base percentage which allowed him to be a very deadly weapon on the base paths.

Reyes finished seventh on the NL MVP voting in 2006 where he batted .300, a career high, with 194 hits, 17 triples, 19 home runs, and 64 stolen bases to go along with 81 RBI. Similar to that year, in 2008, Jose batted .297 with 204 hits, career best, and 19 triples, also a career best. In his last full year, 2010, Reyes saw his stolen bases drop significantly as he finished the season with just thirty.

As a 3-time NL All-Star, Jose Reyes’ stats are worth a look at baseball
