If it wasn't for 11-year-old Jacob Resnick, Jose Reyes' home run on Tuesday night would have been nothing more than another round-tripper for the Mets shortstop.

During the Mets-Marlins game at Citi Field, Resnick was invited up to the booth to call an inning. During his broadcast debut in the bottom half of the third, Reyes ripped one over the left field wall and Resnick took care of the rest, as seen in the video above.

Identifying Jose Reyes’ slump

Jose Reyes has done nothing but put up inhuman numbers this season. But lately, the Mets phenom shortstop proved he is indeed, human. Reyes’ average sat at .339 before Wednesday’s game, the lowest it’s been since June 25. Numbers are a tricky bunch, and on the surface that looks like a fantastic batting average. The problem is, it’s still falling. Sandy Alderson and team...

Mets unlikely to offer Jose Reyes 7 year contract

“Despite the decision not to trade Reyes, the Mets remain highly unlikely to offer their superstar shortstop the “Carl Crawford money” that many in baseball believe he will command, sources say.

11-Year-Old Is The Best Broadcaster The Mets Have Ever Had

Young Jacob Resnick got to call Jose Reyes' first-pitch home run last night (and stick around for the eventual Mets meltdown). He won an essay contest and an audition, and we see why he won. He's genuinely excited by the game he's calling, a trait all-too-often absent in our current crop of commentators. (The headline's a joke - Gary, Keith and Ron are actually quite...

New York Mets Playoff Chances: Is It Time To Raise the White Flag?

In the old days of cowboys and Indians, a group that knew it was beaten would either continue to fight and wait for the cavalry to arrive with reinforcements to aid them in their fight or they would raise a white flag to signify their unconditional surrender.While, we never see this scenario actually pan out in today's society, we still use this as a sports metaphor for...

Is Miguel Cabrera this generation’s Hank Aaron?

On June 20, 2003, Miguel Cabrera struck out in his first big league at bat.  He’d get the last laugh however. In the bottom of the eleventh inning the 20-year-old rookie hit a two-run home run to help his then-Florida Marlins to a 3-1 victory over the then-Tampa Bay Devil Rays. Now, I bring that up only to awkwardly segue into this. Friday, the reigning American League MVP turned...
