    This team should be relegated to minor leagues; absolutely pathetic.

    Jose Reyes – SS … picked off
    Josh Thole – C … can’t bunt / throw overhand
    David Wright – 3B … can’t hit
    Carlos Beltran – RF … hits but questionable fielding
    Ike Davis – 1B … very good at being upset at out calls
    Angel Pagan – CF … can’t hit/take home
    Willie Harris – LF … can’t bunt
    Daniel Murphy – 2B … looking good today
    R.A. Dickey – P … too many runs
