Reyes MVP?

Jose Reyes has developed into such an offensive force from the top of the Mets' lineup that it's not a reach to suggest he'll earn some MVP votes and perhaps finish in the top 10.
Jose Reyes is on pace to hit .292 with 19 HR, 85 RBI, 23 triples, 34 doubles and 68 stole bases…the last shortstop to hit .300 with 50 stolen bases, 20 doubles, 15 triples and 10 home runs was Honus Wagner in 1908 for the Pirates…
"I think he could be," Randolph said. "That to me is what a real MVP is. You're crazy valuable when you can do all of those things and play defense. If I'm a manager, I want a guy that can do all of those things."
