Jose Reyes 2011 NL Batting Champ: Money Ball Type Player Sandy?

Ryan Braun finished tonight 0-4 making Jose Reyes the undisputed 2011 NL Batting Champ.

For all of the Jose detractors out there, he is the first Met to win the batting title, holds the team record in stolen bases, triples and runs scored. He finished the year with a .384 OBP.

I was not happy with Jose/Terry's decision to sit after the bunt single in the first, but Jose did something no other Met has done. He has won the batting title. He was a mere point ahead of Braun after last night's game, but the 2011 year finished with Reyes locked in at an average of .337 where Braun finished the night and the season hitting a measly .332.

Congratulations to Jose.
