Found April 26, 2012 on Metstradamus:
The first of anything that Jose Reyes does against the Mets can be pretty jarring. Take Wednesday, when Omar Infante crushed a home run off R.A. Dickey to make the score 1-0. Who do you think was waiting for Infante at the top step with a choreographed handshake? That's right, Reyes.Now I've been the guy who has spent years defending the choreography. So I'm not going to be the one to do a 180 ... certainly not like the Marlins, who made it a point to rally around the Mets antics to get themselves pumped up to knock them out of the playoffs in 2007, only to cite Reyes' exuberance as one of the things they liked about him. But boy, watching Reyes dance with Infante was like Jack Parkman's shimmy driving the girls in Cleveland wild as an Indian, only to make them puke when he was a White Sock. It almost short circuited my brain.But the other first for Reyes as a Marlin against the Mets made me smile: His first gift for the Mets, throwing a double play ball clear ov...

Former Fan Favorite, Jose Reyes Returns To Citi Field As The Enemy

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...

Don’t Let The Door Hit Ya

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...

Cheering for Jose Reyes

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...

Pre Game: Miami Marlins (7-8) at New York Mets (8-8): Return of Kings

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...

Mets 2, Marlins 1

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...

The Enemy Looks Ridiculous

Well this just about brings it home, so to speak. Doesn't it? It promised to be an eventful day, but we just didn't know how eventful. We awoke to "Jose Reyes Day" with Jason Bay hitting the disabled list with a fractured rib which he accrued by flailing and missing a fly ball. This we sort of expected. But then we find out that Mike Pelfrey (the other boo twin...

Mets slip past Marlins

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...

Losing Skid Hits Four

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...
