Stealing Signals: My Man-Crush On Jose Reyes Continues.

Mets 11, Braves 1 - The Mets go 4-0 behind the bats of Jose Reyes (two triples, 4 RBIs) and Carlos Delgado, with a couple of his own off an RBI single. The real surprise is Oliver Perez, who threw seven incredible innings, recovering from being super shaky in last year's playoffs. That is scary.

Angels 5, A's 2 - We dig the longball here just like anyone else, and I especially like watching Vlad the Impaler sock one for three runs. Howie Kendrick hits a solo homer to add on to it, and the Angels look like a force despite lacking Bartolo Colon and Jered Weaver from the rotation right now.

Rangers 2, Red Sox 0 - Maybe I picked up the wrong Texas pitcher in my fantasy leagues: Robinson Tejeda threw two hits through seven, while the Bosox blow a decent effort by the ageless Tim Wakefield by not putting bats on balls.

Cubs 9, Brewers 3 - Five perfect innings from Rich Hill (seven good ones total), while most of the Cubbie lineup destroys like $300 million ought to.

Reyes is a badass...crazy thing is he's probably the best player in that awesome lineup

Yeah -- if you lead the league in stolen bases, hit triples like it's no big thing, and can still jack the ball over the fence and get 80+ RBI as a leadoff guy, you might just be the best player on your team.
