I have to wonder is Reyes’ second hamstring issue in the last couple of weeks isn’t a little bit of a good break for the Mets.
It just might help to keep his price from ballooning into the stratosphere when he hits the open market this winter.
The way I see it one injury and DL stint is completely forgivable, an isolated incident that happens to most athletes along the way of 162 game sked. But TWO hammy injuries inside of a month is a whole different animal, now it’s a pattern.
Things could easily get out of control during the hot stove but at lease Reyes now has some red flags attached to him.
And I believe Jose is worth more to the Mets than anyone else.
Poor Murphy. Torn MCL and out for the season is brutal. After his 2011 season 2 things are clear:
• the kid can hit for average
• He’s still a bat without a position on the field
