Jose Reyes has been showered with boos in each of his at-bats so far in the game as he continues to upper cut every pitch he sees at the plate. While Hanley Ramirez and Jimmy Rollins did their talking with their bats in September, Jose Reyes who was touted as an MVP in April and May, has taken a nose-dive in the second half with the worst of it coming in the last six weeks. Rollins and Ramirez, on the other hand have thrived and both will get plenty of votes when the MVP vote is tabulated next week.

It will be interesting to see how Reyes, who swore he would not regress after signing his big multi-year contract, responds after a dismal showing in the final weeks of a critical playoff push.
