Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan Are A Nice 1-2 PunchJune 19, 2010
I really like the combination Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan at the top of the Mets lineup. Jerry Manuel is going to have some interesting decisions to make if/when Luis Castillo and Carlos Beltran come back. Castillo normally bats second and well Carlos Beltran is the Mets starting Center Fielder. I just don’t see how you can break up Reyes and Pagan at this point. Below are the offensive stats for both players in their respective batting positions so far this season.
Jose Reyes – Batting Lead-off: 42 G | 185 AB | .303 Avg | 9 2b | 4 3b | 3 HR | 12 BB | 11 SB | 27 Runs
Angel Pagan - Batting Second: 13 G | 56 AB | .286 Avg | 5 2b | 1 3b | 0 HR | 5 BB | 4 SB | 8 Runs
