Jose Reyes: The Reyes of old

No more issues with his legs or his health as made Jose Reyes the exciting player we have watched for the last 7 years as the Mets shortstop.  I just finished reading  Bitter Bill's latest  amd it got me annoyed so I figured I need to chat about someone who is turning heads.

In his contract walk year Reyes is doing all he can do to either prove to the Mets that he belongs on this team's radar for a contract extension or he is make Alderson and crew wonder what he will bring in the open market. 

Reyes has still not shown the patience as a lead off hitter but hey I will take a triple any day then a walk and a stolen base. So Far Reyes has 20 hits which include 2 triples and 5 doubles which ties him for the team lead with David Wright in the doubles dept. He leads the team with a .328 avg and also leads the team surprisingly in slugging percentage. 

What I find interesting is Reyes is making contact alot more. He has struck out only 4 times in over 60 plate appearances.  He is the new version of never strike out Castillo but actually can hit and field his position.

What will the Mets do with Jose? who knows but he is doing all he can to show that it will not be an easy decision for Elvis and his crew.
