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 was the winner once again last week, edging out Eduardo Nunez in a battle of shortstops. The New York Yankees went 3-3 this week, while the New York Mets had a winning California road trip, going 4-3, but all eyes were on Derek Jeter as he finally recorded his 3,000th hit (and added a couple more for good measure). The voting this time around should pretty much be a formality, but here are the nominees:

↵

Derek Jeter: Who cares what he did the rest of the week -- on Saturday the Yankee captain belted a home run for his 3,000th hit, went five-for-five with a double and drove in the winning run to boot. If that was scripted in a movie, everyone would have scoffed, "C'mon, that would never happen!" Another magical Derek Jeter moment.

↵

CC Sabathia: What more can you say about the Yankees' ace? This week he threw two more gems, starting with seven shutout innings and 11 strikeouts in Cleveland on Tuesday and he topped that performance on Sunday, with a complete-game shutout, striking out nine, walking one and only allowing four hits.

↵

Carlos Beltran: With trade rumors swirling around, and San Francisco a possible landing spot for the Met right fielder, Beltran showed the Giants what they possibly have to look forward to. For the week, he batted .346, scored eight runs, hit five doubles and a home run, drove in four runs and walked five times.

↵

Chris Capuano: He sure was consistent this week. On Monday, in the win over the Dodgers, the veteran lefty threw six innings, gave up two runs, struck out five and allowed six hits, and he gave his team a chance to win on Saturday in San Francisco, when he again lasted six innings, giving up two runs, striking out five and scattering four hits. In six of his last seven starts, Capuano has allowed two runs or fewer.
