This man. Pay this man his money. It’s not Carl Crawford money anymore, it’ll be Jose Reyes money (ripped from Peter Botte’s tweet). And he’ll deserve it.
He’s slashing .339/.389/.512/.899 –that’s average, OBP, SLG, OPS, in case you didn’t know.
He’s tied for the major league lead in hits, with 84.
He leads all of baseball in triples with 11. Second place has 6.
He’s only tied for 4th in the majors with 18 doubles.
Stolen bases, you ask? Tied for third, with 19.
Not enough walks for you? He’s 17th in MLB with a .389 OBP.
Pay this man his money.
He’s healthy. He’s in his prime. He’s killing opposing pitchers.
And he’s awesome.
Pay the man his money. Whatever it may be.
Open your checkbooks, Wilpon family. Sign whatever has the most zeroes on the end of it. Trot out more merchandise to fill your empty pockets. Do whatever you have to do.
Pay the man.
