Jose Reyes Lifts Mets Steals Toward Top Rankings

With speedster Jose Reyes on pace to steal more than 60 bases this season, the Mets have 79 so far as a team, second only in the majors to the Rays with 96. At the same time the Mets have allowed the fewest steals in the majors, just 30.

Meanwhile, the reports of first baseman Carlos Delgado's death have been greatly exaggerated, with the slugging Puerto Rican having hit four homers with 15 RBI in his last 10 games.
