not sure what willie is saying to jose right here. hopefully he's stressing the importance of plate awareness and having a high on base percentage. willie knows about that. jose doesn't. back in 1992, 37 year old willie first experienced mets baseball. he was brought over here to play for jeff torborg after batting .327 (.424 obp) the year before for the brewers. like everyone on that team, willie disappointed. that ugly season at shea was enough to make him retire as a player. still, willie churned out a .352 obp for the season. jose reyes would give his left nut to have a .352 obp. willie had a career .373 obp, so when he speaks about getting on base, let's hope jose is paying attention.
