Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Gold Glove winner at his position each of the past two years, has already made as many errors this season as he made all of last — six. But that surprising fact is of little comfort to Marlins shortstop Jose Reyes, who is extremely unhappy with his own defensive play. Reyes has committed five fielding miscues, only one fewer than Tulowitzki's major-league high. "Five is not acceptable,'' Reyes said. "The errors that I've made, I should make those plays. ... I'm not happy about it at all.'' Reyes dropped a throw from Donnie Murphy in Thursday's game. He has also dropped a pop fly in shallow left and was charged with another error when he collided with third baseman Hanley Ramirez on a routine pop that hit his glove and dropped to the grass. "I'd prefer to go 0 for 5 than to make an error in the field,'' Reyes said. "That's something I don't like because when you make an error, that means you're giving the other team another opportunity to do some damage.'' Reyes' season-high for errors is 18, a number he was charged with in 124 games last season and in 161 games in 2005.
