But here's something to consider. Perhaps the Mets stagnant play can be attributed to just one player. Take a look at Jose Reyes this year, compared with a former Met shipped away:
Jose Reyes: .258 BA, 22 runs, 2 HR, 14 RBI, 12SB
Carlos Gomez: .272BA, 22 runs, 3 HR, 14 RBI, 16SB
How in the world is Gomez outplaying Reyes? Let's hope Mike and Chris realize how much Reyes has destroyed this team. Where in the world has Jose Reyes gone?
3:14PM Update: Jose Reyes just made one of the worst plays of his career, trying to go first to third on a sac bunt to kill a Mets rally. If the Nats hang on for one more inning, Mike and the Dog could be legend-wait-for-it-dary. Stay tuned.
