Jose Reyes: 4 Reasons Why He Will Dominate MLB in 2012

Miami Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes will be the center of attention during the 2012 Major League Baseball season because of his athleticism and ability to excite fans.

The way he left the New York Mets, the only team he has played for since becoming a pro in 2003—and his decision to sit out the last game of the 2011 season to save his batting title—may have cost him a few fans in New York.

However, to many, he is still the one of the best baseball players in the entire league.  

The Marlins are looking for a fresh start after finishing fifth and last in the NL East in 2011 with a 72-90 win-loss record.

They signed up Reyes for six years for total of $106 million. That makes it the richest deal in the franchise’s history. Anything labelled  “the most” has always been the center of attention.

The season hasn't started well for the Marlins (1-3), but with 158 games to go, this is hardly a reason to get on Reyes or the team just yet.
