I think there's a good chance Reyes ends up with the best stats of all three this year.

If Reyes stays healthy, he may have the highest ceiling of the three.

I have no doubt this is true. I also think Giles is underrated here especially with 2b scarcity being what it is. I think Giles is a future borderline first round pick, assuming he can stay healthy somehow.

I have all three very close but like this:
Giles
Reyes
Nomar

1. Giles
2. Nomar
3. Reyes

Notice all of these people that are talking about Reyes are using words like IF and POSSIBLY. Yes, Reyes has the potential to steal 50 bags, but I think Giles' 15-20 HR, 15 SB, and .310 AVG are a better bet than Reyes swiping 50 and knocking in 80. Just my thoughts tho...

The guy is aggressive and most of the time you he will be off with man on base since a lead off hitter is only garanteed hitting with no man on base once. He could hit 80 rbi if the mets get on base and score 100 runs easy.


That sounds like a better argument for him to score less runs than the average lead-off hitter rather than score more RBIs. A player is not a very good lead-off hitter if he won't take a walk. Maybe that's why Reyes has such a low OBP so far in the majors.

Nomar/Giles -- depening on your needs (2nd or SS)



Reyes -- this guy is not even close to the other two, MAYBE SOMEDAY, but not this year, he just isnt at that level yet, the term "perennial all star" just doesnt apply to reyes yet, and it may never

At least someone is talking some sense. Reyes has great potential but he isn't on Nomar and Giles level.
