Vote For The SB Nation NY Player Of The Week

Welcome to the new format of SB Nation NY's Player of the Week. Now, instead of me randomly deciding who the winner is based on whose name is easiest to spell or which player I'd most like to attend a barbecue with, you, our faithful readers, get to choose! Here are the nominees, who have performed the best over the past seven days. Vote now!

↵

Jose Reyes: If the Kentucky Derby is the most exciting two minutes in sports, a Jose Reyes triple may be the most exciting play in baseball. The Met shortstop had quite a week: He batted .440, smacked four triples, hit two doubles, drove in five runs and walked four times.

↵

Curtis Granderson: The New York Yankees center fielder is turning into the home run king of the home runniest hitting team in the majors. For the week, he hit .291, blasted three dingers, drove in five, scored eight runs and walked seven times.

↵

Ivan Nova: The young Yankee hurler pitched the best game of his career on Friday night, going seven 1/3 innings, with zero earned runs (one unearned) and only allowed two hits. That's efficient and dominant.

↵

Mike Pelfrey: The New York Mets' ace-by-default finally pitched like one on Thursday, picking up the win, going seven 2/3 innings, allowing one earned run on four hits. Maybe he won't have to live with Richard Dreyfus' family this summer, after all, as Bill Murray did in What About Bob? Baby steps . . .

↵

Derek Jeter: He's not dead yet. The is-he-or-isn't-he-washed-up shortstop broke out of his doldrums in a big way this week, hitting .392, with a double, two home runs, three RBIs and four runs scored.

↵

Carlos Beltran: All Beltran did this week was hit .411 with two home runs, three doubles and six RBIs. Not bad for a gimpy old man.
