The Mets again beat the Tigers, this time to the tune of 16-9. The offense has been unstoppable lately, recording a franchise record 52 runs in a four game span. The Post seems to think that the reason the Mets are now playing so well lies squarely on the back of Jose Reyes.
Carlos Beltran would ok a trade to a contender if he's asked. It will be a sad day in Flushing if this does in fact happen, and unfortunately some will likely be glad to see him go.
Speaking of trades, Detroit beat writers started asking Jose Reyes his thoughts on Detroit. I'd expect to see these types of articles every time we play a new team, as everyone could use Reyes. While we're on Reyes, the NL All Star SS race is heating up. Voting closes tonight, so vote Reyes now.
The NY times is still fascinated that the Mets hit two grand slams in seven at bats Tuesday. Frankly, so am I.
Fangraphs has a little fun with some bad contracts. Barry Zito never looked so good...
Three Binghamton Mets were named Eastern League All-Stars
Willie Harris has returned to New York to deal with the birth of his child. Best wishes go out to Willie from all Mets fans.
Around the NL East:
Former #3 overall pick Donovan Tate was suspended for 50 games for repeated recreational drug use. He's being credited 25 of those games for his participation in the MILB rehab program earlier this season (which doesn't seem to have done the trick).
The Red Sox decided to use Adrian Gonzalez in right field against the Phillies to make room for David Ortiz. Peter Gammons suggests that Carlos Beltran isn't going to be the answer there in the rematch if this is, in fact, a World Series preview. Gammons also hinted that John Lackey may be headed to Tommy John surgery.
