Jose Reyes is Not Pregnant
Good news, Mets fans: Jose Reyes is NOT pregnant.
Steve Popper was the first to report that news on Twitter early yesterday, and further blood work evaluated last night confirms it.
Whew! That would have been a major issue for the Mets, who already are without Carlos Beltran for the first few months of the season.
Though, I imagine Jose would have been able to stay on the field for the first trimester … but almost certainly would have been out of uniform by June. Even if he felt great, you’d have to think that his belly would have gotten in the way of reaching down for ground balls — not to mention the weight gain putting a strain on his already suspect legs.
In other good news for Mets fans, Hisanori Takahashi has cleared up his visa problem and can now take the mound in exhibition games. No word on whether he’ll be wearing Ken Takahashi’s old jersey.
Additionally, the Mets signed Kiko Calero — full post coming soon.
But there’s still more to cheer about — Ike Davis hit a grand slam and David Wright hit a homerun in his first at-bat as the Mets pounded the Cardinals 17-11.
Finally, things are looking up for the New York Mets!
