Hanley Ramirez wanted to take a bite out of the The Big Apple on Monday, so why not call up Jay-Z? Ramirez tweeted a photo of himself hanging out with the legendary musician on Monday, which comes as a bit of a surprise. Who knew the Marlins third baseman was in contact with one of the world's biggest rap moguls? Better yet, who knew they were buddy-buddy enough for Ramirez to refer to Jay-Z as "my man" in his tweet? Making the photo even more unique is the Nirvana shirt that Ramirez is rocking during the duo's day out. And...

I'd like to argue that the Miami Marlins can't win with youngsters such as left fielder Logan Morrison, 24, and right fielder Giancarlo Stanton, 22, hitting in the middle of the order.
Well, Morrison is the least of the team's problems, and Stanton at least has something of an excuse, which is more than most of his teammates can say.
The Marlins are 7-10 after falling...
With the Marlins 2-1 loss against the Mets last night a real trend has begun to emerge with the Fish. When the Marlins struggle from the plate they don't win. In the teams nine losses the Marlins have scored on average only 1.7 runs per game, and if you take out the two losses the Marlins have because of Heath Bell's blown saves that number droops to 0.9 runs per game...
Jose Reyes was never my favorite Mets player. In fact, he probably wouldn't find himself in my personal top five. However, as a fan who considers the triple to be the most exciting play in baseball, Reyes is without question the most exciting player I've ever seen strap on the blue and orange of the New York Mets.Reyes made things happen, seemingly always putting immense...
When Jose Reyes inked his name on a six-year, 106 million dollar deal back in December it was admittedly hard to be rationale. The Mets were seemingly letting one of the faces of their franchise walk away to a division rival.
With all that being said, months later it is becoming increasingly apparent that Met fans need to collectively stand up and salute Sandy Alderson for saving...
The Miami Marlins lost their fourth straight game on Wednesday as the New York Mets won 5-1. The game continued a rough road trip for Miami which has not won since leaving Marlins Park last week and has been outscored 12-4 in the span. The Marlins who are in last place in the National League East now sit at 7-10 on the year.
Mark Buehrle put together another great effort...
Reyes comes back!

Miami Marlin Jose Reyes returned to NY yesterday. Fans showed up early for autographs and to sing the Jose song.
The Mets put together a video tribute and Jose was announced in the Marlins'...

Get used to it.
Jose Reyes makes his highly anticipated return to Citi Field tonight as the Mets host the Marlins in the opener of an important (for April) three-game set. The Mets will send Johan Santana to the mound tonight looking to end a two-game losing streak. He’ll be opposed by Miami’s ace Josh Johnson.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. and the game can be seen on...
Jose Reyes went hitless in his return to Citi Field and Lucas Duda lined a tiebreaking single in the eighth inning that caromed off reliever Edward Mujica, sending the New York Mets to a 2-1 victory over the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night.
Johan Santana and Josh Johnson zipped through the first six innings in a crisp pitchers' duel between healthy-looking aces. Santana, coming...

Back in the once-friendly confines of Citi Field, Jose Reyes first got a mixed reaction from the New York crowd, nearly opened the game with a big hit and ultimately failed to reach base in the game.
While Reyes used the opener...

won’t boo, wont cheer. i’ll sit back let it happen...
I went to Citi Field last night specifically to cheer Jose Reyes in his first game back in New York. I appreciate all he did for the team and can't see how anyone can blame him for leaving when the Mets did not make him an offer. I stood and cheered for his first at-bat, then treated him like any other member of the Marlins, rooting for the Mets to get him out, but not booing...
After spending the previous nine seasons pacing the New York Mets, the Miami Marlins' Jose Reyes is looking forward to returning to the Big Apple.
A three-game set at Citi Field could help the reigning NL batting champion get going at the plate.

The night was supposed to be all about ex-Met Jose Reyes' return to New York in his splashy new Miami Marlins uniform. The more significant story, though, turned out to be a pair of gems thrown by aces injured in 2011, as Johan Santana and Josh Johnson locked up in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel in the first game of their three-game series at Citi Field on Tuesday. As...
