Jose Reyes hustles more than any other player in the league. He never ran on a few balls he thought were foul this year, ok, we all know that, but every other time, he sprints out a ground ball or fly ball, throws the runner out, catches the pop-up, turns the double play, and makes some flashy plays to go along with it.
To say Reyes is lazy or whatever people are saying is pathetic and the most silly thing I have heard in years.
Jose Reyes DID lead the league in stolen baes, did he not? Shouldn’t that show people that he DOES RUN? Sheesh, even know I want to be a sports writer, some of them out there are wacked out…anyways…
Also, what’s this nonsense about Reyes and his friends “celebrating” too much? Puh-lease, everyone does that, and nobody said a word about that when the Mets were cruising in 2006, and most of 2007. The only reason that people are trashing Reyes is that the Mets flunked out as a team through the end of the year and they want to find reasons.
Any criticism about Reyes whatsoever needs to stop. He is one of the best shortstops in the game, period.
