Jose, Jose, Jose, Jose Applesauce: Reyes Hits Another Triple, Mets Draft a Slew of Players

New, comments

Meet the Mets

The Mets beat the Brewers last night behind another strong Chris Capuano start and yet another triple by Jose Reyes. It was a game that would make for someone's ideal first game of baseball.

With 11 triples on the year, Reyes is only the third player in the past 80 years to hit as many triples in his team's first 60 games. The All-Star Game voting process may be a joke, but if you haven't done so already, go Vote for Reyes because he's simply the best shortstop in baseball so far this year.

Prior to the win, the Mets drafted a whole bunch of players, all of whom I know nothing about. Luckily for you, Alex knows a lot more than me. And there are those who say Mets fans should trust the scouts.

Citi Field hosted its first game of soccer last night, and Ecuador and Greece played to a 1-1 tie.

Around MLB

The Dodgers beat the Phillies with relative ease, the Braves beat the Marlins one-zip, and the Nationals eked out a 2-1 win over the Giants.

Aramis Ramirez says he won't waive his no-trade clause. In other news, the other 29 teams in baseball said they won't give up anything to trade for Aramis Ramirez.

Miguel Cairo hit a grand slam in the Reds' 8-2 win over the Cubs. I repeat: Miguel Cairo hit a grand slam.

If you missed it, Bryce Harper blew a kiss to the pitcher during his home run trot a night after he was thrown at.

The Rockies officially released Jose Lopez.

Joe Torre's been a busy man, handing down a three-game suspension to Jonathan Papelbon for bumping an umpire and suspending Jason Marquis and Esmerling Vazquez for their antics.

The Mets aren't the only team that deals with injuries: Mark Teixeira's got a knee contusion after he was hit by a pitch last night. Brett Anderson is getting a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, never a good thing for a pitcher. Oh and Jimmy Rollins has a bone bruise that may send him to the DL.
