He's on pace for 38 doubles, 48 triples, 19 homers, 95 SB, 200 runs and 152 RBIs. Oh yeah, his defense is off the hook too.
Any chance you get, watch the Mets if for no other reason than to see Reyes. He's on another plane right now.
He definitely is playing the game at an entire different level than anyone else in the league at the moment. His impact is impossible to stop at the plate, on the basepaths, in the field etc... and to watch that lightning quick bat lash a ball into the RCF gap, while his legs transform it into a triple, is a beautiful sight to behold.
Best of all, you (M2), christened him as destined to be a unique form of superstar, all the way back when he was an overmatched teenager scraping to try to keep his OBP at .300. And you did so above the objections of some who thought his statistical profile would never allow him to develop the plate discipline to succeed. Great call, on a fantastic ballplayer.
