The Mets Have Way Bigger Problems Than Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes

Almost back to .500 after an 11-1 start and people want to blame Jose Reyes for the Mets play of late?!? Instead of yunno, Sandy Alderson and his horrible signing of Jason Vargas or Jay Bruce’s struggling start or a bullpen that continues to implode (esp. A.J. Ramos and Jerry Blevins). Forget that Reyes is just a backup infielder at this point of his career or that he only starts like once a week or that he got off to just as much of a bad start last year and rebounded to have a pretty good season or that besides Brandon Nimmo, he’s the only guy Mickey Callaway can count on to steal a base every now and again. Picking on Jose Reyes for the Mets recent failings just seems like a reach to me.
