They didn't want him, Ramirez or Bonafacio to steal in spring training and Guillen openly talked about it. They moved him to hit third because there was no one else.
You realize what you're saying makes no sense right? As was already pointed out, he stole more in the second half and after he hit third for a month he went back to lead off.
I don't even understand the point you're trying to make.
Neither is Jose. That is the point. Fans here keep saying how Jose was overpaid at 106M or 17M+ per year. Fact is they are both worth the money since the market dictates that figure.
Then came the comparisons between the 2 players. Some say Jose is not stealing as much but fail to see that Wright is not hitting as many hrs either.
So power is Wright's game and that has gone down. Speed is Jose's game and that has also gone down.
"he needs music in the clubhouse in order care about winning "
LOL - THAT wins the thread.
No it is not debatable, Reyes will score 90 Plus and knock in 40 or so, Wright will score 90 + and knock in 100 +
Sooooo do the Math same amount of runs 60 more RBI.
"The Yankees NEVER let their own beloved homegrown play for another uniform"
We will see that put to the test with Robinson Cano.
To entirely didfferent situations. Not the least be comparable in my view.
Plus I really believe in my heart that Reyes wanted to leave for Florida all along, and just wanted to use the Mets to up the ante with the Marlins.
Plus Reyes' leg issues was a big factor in this too I'm sure. It's not like there were any teams other than the Marlins that seriously went after Reyes.
