Becker: Trading Reyes

Hi, I'm Pete Becker. You may remember me from such columns as "Jose Reyes versus Albert Pujols" in which I proclaimed that Reyes, not Pujols, would be the most valuable player in fantasy this season. I'm pretty happy with that call, so far, though I did not expect that it would be because Pujols has already gone through two slumps, or because Reyes would be gunning for the century mark in steals.

Nor did I expect this e-mail to come my way Monday afternoon.
