Mets fans, I speak of this every off-season. The great myth of the Jose Reyes manufactured run.
You know the one.
He leads off the game with a single, steals a base and scores on a sacrifice.
It actually happened last night (stealing third not second) and the Mets won a game! Imagine that.
I agree it’s a great plan, I just never see it happen. I didn’t see it last night because my DVR is full and there are other things to watch than 2011 spring training games with a lame duck manager.
I’m aware my Reyes criticisms make people sad. Is there a better option at SS? Nope. Does he maximize his talent? Nope. He even admitted lapses in concentration last week.
Would I move him? Yep. See Boston 2004. Jose is probably the only moveable piece you would get anything in return for and we’ve proven this mix doesn’t work.
Will he then win the AL MVP? How long have you been a Mets fan? Of course he will.
