Adam Rubin of "ESPNNewYork.com" reports that, per Jerry Manuel, Jose Reyes will bat third in the lineup against the Braves this weekend. Among other things that could magically cause the Mets to start hitting better (apart from a few more plate appearances), I have enlisted the services of a local warlock named Gorblon whose powerful (and expensive!) execration of the Mets' hitting woes is expected to take effect in the next few days, or whenever the Mets actually start hitting better. We shall see, Gorblon. We shall see.
