Vote For The SB Nation NY Player Of The Week

It's Monday morning, so that means it's time to vote for the SB Nation New York Player of the Week. Jose Reyes took home the honors last week, thanks to his multi-hit-game bonanza, and the only reason he's not on this week's list is because he missed a bunch of games. The New York Yankees went 5-1 in California this week, while the New York Mets scraped and clawed their way to a 4-3 mark. There are plenty of nominees this time around. So vote now!

Bartolo Colon: Kids all over the New York area are getting controversial stem cell surgery and gaining weight just to be like their new hero, Colon. A complete game is a sight for sore eyes these days, and Colon threw a masterpiece on Monday, going all the way, finishing with a shutout, while whiffing six batters, allowing four measly hits, without walking anybody. And on Sunday he pitched just well enough to win, upping his record to 4-3, with a 3.39 ERA.

Dillon Gee: He's calm, he's cool, he's collected, he's Dillon Gee. He may not have been a top prospect and he doesn't have lights-out stuff, but Gee just knows how to pitch. He started two games this week, and won both, because all he does is win. On Saturday he threw seven shutout innings, only giving up four hits, and on Monday he also lasted seven innings, allowing a mere three runs. The rookie is now 6-0, with a 3.33 ERA and 1.11 WHIP.

Daniel Murphy: The versatile, three-position infielder went on a Reyes-like multi-hit rampage of his own this week, which helped up his average from a lowly .233 on May 19 all the way to .309. In the six games he started (with one pinch-hit appearance), he piled up 14 hits, to the tune of a .560 average, with three runs scored, three RBIs, two walks and six multi-hit games.

↵

R.A. Dickey: The knuckleballer had his knuckleball working this week. Dickey was cruising along on Tuesday before the wheels fell off for him and his team, but he still went seven and 2/3 innings, giving up three runs and striking out a career high 10 batters. And on Sunday, he was even better, going eight innings and only allowing one run. And he did it all on a bum foot, which is just one more reason why R.A. Dickey is the most interesting man on the face of the earth.

↵

Alex Rodriguez: The Yankee third baseman has begun to hit, just as his steroid-peddling cousin has been seen lurking in the shadows again. It's probably nothing, but with A-Rod it's always something, and it opens up the door for much speculation and rumors. Nonetheless, for the week, he batted .333, with a home run, six RBIs, two doubles and three walks. And he provided some sparkling defense to boot.

↵

CC Sabathia: He came as close you can get to throwing a complete game without throwing a complete game on Saturday, lasting eight and 2/3 innings, letting in one earned run, while striking out three, walking one and giving up eight hits. The ace lowered his ERA to 2.80 and is now 7-3.
