Does Anyone Care About Reyes and Batting Crown? 

Maybe I’m wrong but there seems to be a general malaise from Met fans when it comes to Reyes battling it out with Ryan Braun for the batting title.

Considering a Met has never finished with the top NL avg you’d think fans would be really invested in this but on the whole there’s shockingly little passion for this cause.

Maybe people are detaching themselves from Jose expecting to lose him this winter. Maybe we’re afraid he’ll price himself out of our range.

I don’t know what’s going on but the interest in this historic run is frustratingly low and it doesn’t male sense.

    I’m still very interested!

    I don’t know how much commenting we can do about watching numbers though.
    I can’t remember whether it was the SNY guys or the espn guys who suggested he was going at 75% now, to guard the hammie. I find that hard to believe that he’s thnking “75%” when he’s in the box.

    I hope Reyes wins the batting title but find it hard to get excited about him battling it out for an individual award when the team is going nowhere. It could be exciting the last day or two but just not sure how to get all revved up about it on a day-to-day basis.

    I wouldn’t care too much about Jose Reyes, either - considering his numbers are all 1st Half #’s.


    Yes, it’s true………it’s DAMNED TRUE!!

    Agree With BJ! Its not a RZeyes thing, its a Met thing. Baseball is a team game.

    It was a long season and realistically we were never in play all year. Our biggest challanges were getting to .500 and staying out of the basement….not much there!

    That does bot give you much to cheer about. It kind of sounds like the Pittsburgh Pirates!

    Met fans are sick of watching the team play out the string and it seems to get earlier every year!

    Add to it that college and pro football have started and you have plenty of reason not to turn on the Mets.

    Oh I forgot to add watching a bad baseball team thats out of it is another reason. There is still two weeks of this to drag on!

    Yes it’s a team game but I think its actually a good thing to appreciate one of our own guys on our own team for a career accomplishment. As a stand-alone huge pat on the back for a great job, without qualifying the said great job with adding that the team is sub-500…..and he is doing everything he can to help the team, isn’t he?

  6. BlondiesJake Says:

    The Hat Flap continues as apparently Bud Selig is pissed the Mets took the issue public.

    Hey Selig, if you didn’t try and enforce such a stupid effin rule, MLB wouldn’t have been embarrassed!!!

  7. BlondiesJake Says:

    PR, we’re not saying we’re not rooting for Jose, we’re just explaining why we’re not super excited about the chase for the batting title. I’m all for him winning and then getting big money FROM THE METS!

  8. JoeG Says:

    F*&k Bud Selig-who cares if he’s pissed/ They deserve it!!!

    I love how Selig said he was mad the Mets embarrassed him and MLB on the Hat issue…well good, you should be embarrassed by it.

    I also love how Torre is backing away from his decision not to let the Mets wear what they wanted to wear… he said “I think they were sent a memo, but in no way was it heavy-handed. I don’t think money was ever an issue or they were ever threatened with a heavy-fisted fine. If that’s the case, I have no knowledge of it.”

    1st off, be a man and stick by your decision.

    2nd, you said you didn’t lean that heavily on the Mets for their decision to wear them, well you suck no matter what because there shouldn’t be any leaning at all.

    3rd, if the Mets weren’t “threatened with a heavy-fisted fine” Then they would have worn them.

    And last, if MLB didn’t’ “confiscate the caps” before the game, then why did someone take the one Wright had during the game?

    What a Dick.

    As for Reyes, I care and I rooting for him, but the Mets season is done and there are other things to care about. There are more things more interesting to do than watch the Mets play meaningless games.

    Not to mention, it’s a kinda sad reminder that we haven’t had BA champ is 50 years…

    Yes I understand I’m just trying to brush away the dark cloud that always seems to hang over their accomplishments (he hits for the cycle and the team loses, stuff like that) and pay attention to the things we can be proud of as Mets fans.

    I like what Wright said, let it go about the hats, it’s who was wearing the hats that is important.

    I just can’t get that worked up about the batting title thing. Maybe if they start showing all of Braun’s AB’s live during the telecasts, I could get into it, but otherwise it’s a big snooze. Still watching the games though.

  12. Jomama Says:

    I love the Mets and always will but as PR said earlier, with football on, it’s really hard to focus on a losing effort regardless of what Reyes might win. Of course, I wish him luck, now all we’ll need is for Pelf to throw the Mets first no-no. HA.

    have you noticed that a lot of Met fans turn up at their home games disguised as empty seats.
