If the Mets are to go on this miracle run, they’ll need to get Jose Reyes again, beginning tonight with Florida. The Mets are at their best when he gets on and makes things happen.
He’s cooled off since his 15-for-31 road trip Houston and Pittsburgh, going 0-for-10 in the first two games of the Marlins’ series.
He was 0-for-5 last night and grounded out with the bases loaded to end the game.
“I tried to get a base hit or walk, something to tie the game or win the game,’’ Reyes said. “He made a quality pitch on me and got me out. I saw it good, but I wasn’t able to put my best swing on that ball.’’
There’s been discussions about picking up Reyes’ option and negotiate an extension. There’s also been talks in the media if the best thing to do would be to trade him for a package of prospects.
Personally, I’d keep Reyes. You’re not going to find anybody that will produce like him.
NOTE: Folks I have to work tonight and won’t be able to monitor the board. I hope you’ll pop in with your comments.
