Can anything else explain the following, from his April 21st blog post
?[W]hile Carlos Delgado gives them a major presence in the middle of the order, the fact remains that their two best players are David Wright and Jose Reyes.
Stat monkey, fetch me the numbers, please. Thank you.
7 SB, 2 CS
I don't care what Reyes is doing on defense, there's no way he's making up that difference in value. So Peter, when you say Delgado is a "major presence" in the lineup, you mean he's actually been a good baseball player. And when you say Reyes is one of the Mets' "two best players," you mean he has the worst OBP of any regular shorstop in 2006. That's right. Worse than Royce Clayton. Worse still than Yuniesky Betancourt.
Hey Gammo, care to explain yourself?Joel Sherman and I agree on a lot of things, none more strongly than watching Jose Reyes hit the ball in the gap may be the best thing to watch in sports.
Oh. I see.
