I wouldn't know Reese Havens if he came up to me and hit me over the head with a baseball bat. That's assuming he wouldn't swing and miss. Although if he hit me, he probably would pull an oblique muscle and miss a month, the poor bastard. Point being: I don't get paid to recognize Reese Havens. And contrary to what you might think, I don't carry a spring training roster with me everywhere I go. Nationals announcer Bob Carpenter does get paid for this. But apparently he had a tough time with it on Thursday: Reese Havens has been playing second base for 2 innings now but the Nats' announcers still think he's Wilmer Flores. — mistermet (@_mistermet) March 1, 2013 Hey Nats announcers, Reese Havens and Wilmer Flores are not the same dude. — D.J. Short (@djshort) March 1, 2013 hahahaha Wilmer Flores!!!!! stupid Nats old men... He's Reese HAVENS — Francisco Sarceño (@Frank_Guate) March 1, 2013 When referring to Reese Havens, Bob Carpenter has called him Wilmer Flores twice and Brandon Hicks once. — Brian Canell (@bcanell) March 1, 2013 this is incredible. reese havens has been playing 2B for like 4 innings now and they call him "flores" and "hicks" every single time — Jon Presser (@metsjetsnets88) March 1, 2013 Reese Havens gets no respect. First he's mistaken for Wilmer Flores multiple times at 2B, then they call him Brandon Hicks at the plate. — mistermet (@_mistermet) March 1, 2013 Poor Reese Havens. Though it has to be some sort of record to be mistaken for two different players during the same broadcast. Kinda like when Joel Youngblood got a hit for two different franchises in the same day. I'd put it on par with that. Oh, and the Mets tied with the Nationals on Thursday. Stephen Strasburg was apparently pretty good (even while working on a sinker). Rafael Montero started for the Mets and held his own. The Mets kicked the ball around, and Jordany Valdespin went the entire game without posting a picture of himself wearing a Marlins hat on to instagram. And Reese Havens, apparently, can walk across a crowded stage undetected because everybody thinks he's somebody else. Maybe he's leaping from life to life, hoping to put right what was once wrong. (If he was really doing that, maybe he could have helped Hicks with his fielding tonight.) Havens hopes that the next leap will be the leap home. Unfortunately, after he gets designated for assignment, it probably will be.
