What A Difference A .323 Average Can Make

Nobody will ever mistake Ruben Tejada for Jose Reyes, especially after getting thrown out by a country mile while attempting to steal second base in Sunday’s loss to the San Diego Padres. For Tejada it was his second caught-stealing to go with his one stolen base this season. So he’s no speed demon, that’s for sure, but he does have other virtues. Last year, Jose Reyes...

Reyes revisits New York with 24-game hitting streak

PreGame: Miami Marlins (49-60) at New York Mets (53-56)

Johnson, Marlins go for sweep of Mets

Jose Reyes has kept his career-high hitting streak going against his former team, and now Giancarlo Stanton is pounding the ball. They've done nothing of the sort against R.A. Dickey. Reyes and Stanton will try to help the Miami Marlins sweep the New York Mets in this three-game set Thursday, but they'll probably need to solve Dickey's dominance. Reyes has strung together...

Mets Lose Eighth Straight Home Game In 4-2 Loss To Fish

The Mets (53-57) lost to the Marlins (50-60) by the score of 4-2 tonight at Citi Field. It feels like this team is just without energy. I can not explain how or why but it just feels like a different team. The fight was once a fight for the wild-card … and now it is a fight to hit .500 again. I feel like every loss I write a recap for ends up feeling like a tough loss to me....
