Reyes rising

Jose Reyes is one of the most exciting players in major league baseball today. What makes Mets fans even more excited about Reyes is that he's from the farm system and we've watched him develop right in front of our eyes. Joel Sherman of the NY Post writes about Reyes today in his column.

Well, it was Growth Chart Day at Shea yesterday, which could have been renamed Reyes Day. For no one has grown like him the past three seasons. The Mets can only hope that new field being constructed in the parking lot goes up as swiftly and ideally as Reyes' game. Reyes is now a Gold Glove-caliber shortstop, a sturdy, healthy fixture in the lineup, and possessor of a good enough eye to have more walks than anyone on the patient Yankees. He also led the league in runs, triples and steals, and led the Mets in RBIs despite hitting leadoff.
