Jose Reyes Running Toward Historic Season
A few Mets-related links from around the information superhighway …
Jose Reyes is on pace to have a truly historic year — one that would finish with at least 50 doubles and 25 triples. How many times has that happened before? Never. Whether he can keep it up remains to be seen, but playing half his games at Citi Field makes it plausible.
Former Mets clubhouse manager Charlie Samuels is expected to be arrested soon. Didn’t that already happen? Guess not.
Josh Thole may have trouble giving signs to Mike Pelfrey, but not to his deaf dog (which is pretty damn cool). Makes you wonder who REALLY has the communication problem, eh?
Though, Josh hasn’t been so happy communicating on Twitter, so he’s given it up. Can’t really blame him, considering all the “colorful” tweets sent his way.
Eric Simon asks the question nearly every Mets fan has been asking for years: why must bad hitters bat second? (Though, it would be easy enough to have good hitters in the two-hole, if the Mets would simply find a good-hitting second baseman … ha!)
