Info Graphic: Jose Reyes SB and CS in 2010

It’s going to be interesting if the next manager decides to also try and bat Jose Reyes third, not leadoff, like Jerry Manuel attempted last Spring.  It’s going to come up again in conversation, eventually.  I look at Hanley Ramirez and Carl Crawford, who have slowly but surely stayed put in the middle of their respective batting orders, if for no other reason than it keeps them from slamming their bodies to the ground 80 times a season.  It’s only a matter of time, especially coming off a hamstring and oblique injury, for a similar conversation to start swirling tighter and tighter around Reyes.
