Resign Joe Kings Applesauce: Reyes is good, Draft Picks are so-so, Marlins are bad


Meet the Mets

The Metropolitans turned a pitcher's duel into a laugher, besting the Bucs 7-0, while finding all those two out hits they were lacking in Saturday's ballgame. Jose Reyes had another multi-hit game, smacking three hits, including a home run. Let's just start with 6/102 and work it out from there, okay Sandy. As for the rest of you. Go here now and vote 25 times for Reyes.

Apparently you can add Kansas City to the list of teams that should try and trade for Reyes. I think that brings the total to, let's see here, times two, carry the one...uh, 29. Well, you can't have him, he's ours. Especially when you don't actually make an offer in your article.

 

Metsmerized will help you out, SB Nation KC, as they

try to determine Jose Reyes' trade value.

If the Mets do resign Reyes, we may have to #blamebeltran.

Mets ninth round draft pick, Florida's Alex Panteliodis started for the Gators. He did not do so well. The Gators still won and press on to Omaha. Their fourteenth round pick, Xorge Carillo, went 0-3 as Arizona State was eliminated by Texas. Overall, he went 2-6 in the 3 games.

 

Two game hit streak?

 

Everything's coming up Millhouse Jason Bay!

Terry Collins has R.A. Dickey's (and his ERA's) back.

Around the NL East

CyborgHanson48 was suitably cyborg-like

The Phillies came from behind to keep pace atop the division, though.

Hanley Ramirez is set to rejoin the Marlins. He has been out since May 29th with back inflammation. The Marlins could use him, since they have dropped 13 of 16, and with their loss yesterday, fall back to .500

Around MLB

Realignment is the word on everyone's lips. ESPN is reporting that MLB is mulling going to two fifteen team leagues with five playoff spots in each league. The Astros or Marlins would move to the AL, if only there already was an NL team with strong AL ties that they could move. Meanwhile, Jim Bowden has his own plan. It is terrible. Look, just go back to 2 divisions in each league, ditch interleague play and the unbalanced schedule, and take four teams in each league to the playoffs. 

In actual baseball action, Francisco Liriano tossed seven no-hit innings, but Adrian Beltre broke up his bid for two no-hitters in one season. He still got the win for Minnesota.

Prince Fielder is not just a Met killer, apparently. The win put the Brewers a half game ahead of St. Louis for the lead in the Central.

The Red Sox outscored the Blue Jays 35-6, sweeping their weekend series.

Fans in Kinston, NC got two games for the price of one, as the Hi-A Indians beat Myrtle Beach in 23 innings. Casey Frawley ended the longest game in Carolina League history with a walk-off single, after striking out in six of his first ten plate appearances (In total, Kinston struck out 32 times in the game). At six hours and twenty-seven minutes, the game still took less time than your average Red Sox/Yankees contest.
