"We really think Jose [Reyes] is ready to really take it to another level," [Jerry] Manuel said. "We really feel good about where he is in his career, the maturation process. We feel very, very confident that there are a lot of things that he still could do as a player. He could be a third hitter, like I told you all he was. I really believe that he's ready to take off."I can't even imagine "another level" for Reyes.
He's already one of the most exciting players in the league. He's supremely talented at the plate, in the field and on the base paths. But Manuel is right -- he probably hasn't even hit his prime yet -- and that makes me extremely happy.
