Jose Reyes - Week 4, Sept. 2008

This is the final installment of a 4 part series to track Jose Reyes's performance in September. Here are the important numbers:

Sept. 2008, Overall:
25 G, 119 PA, 107 AB, 26 H, 9 XBH, 3 HR, .243/.314/.402, 10/13 SB

Week 1:
6 G, 28 PA, 25 AB, 3 H, 2 XBH, 0 HR, .120/.185/.240, 1/2 SB

Week 2:
5 G, 25 PA, 22 AB, 7 H, 1 XBH, 1 HR, .318/.400/.455, 3/4 SB

Week 3:
7 G, 32 PA, 29 AB, 8 H, 3 XBH, 2 HR, .276/.344/.517, 2/3 SB

Week 4:
7 G, 34 PA, 31 AB, 8 H, 3 XBH, 0 HR, .258/.324/.387, 4/4 SB

It’s safe to say that Jose did not exorcise his 2007 demons this September. A strong final weekend vs. the Marlins would have done the trick, but it was not to be. Jose had 9 hitless games in September, including 4 games of 0-5. From March-August, Jose went 0-5 a total of just 6 times. However, he really had a great year overall, and his final numbers are more or less identical to his breakout 2006 season. Keep up the hard work in the off-season Jose.

***EDIT***: In Sept. 2007, Jose went .205/.279/.333, 2 HR, 10 XBH, 5/9 SB. So 2008 was definitely an improvement, but not up to Jose's capabilities.

Good question I should've included that:

Jose Reyes, Sept. 2007: .205/.279/.333, 2 HR, 10 XBH, 5/9 SB

Jose Reyes, Sept. 2008: .243/.314/.402, 3 HR, 9 XBH, 10/13 SB

An improvement over 2007, but not up to Jose's standards to be sure.
