Jose, Jose, Jose...Jose, Jose! Reyes triples twice, once to right-center and once to left-center. He also doubles, walks and steals a base. He is by far the best player on this team. Citi Field roars like Shea when Reyes hits the gap and heads for three bases.
Wake up and smell the Bustelo, Alderson.
• Jason Pridie drills a 3 run homer in the bottom of the 6th to put the Mets up 5 to 2. Pridie continues to show some pop and is playing an excellent centerfield. Even when Pagan comes back, Pridie deserves to be on this team over Harris and Hariston.
• Ike hit another bullet Home Run. He is fun to watch.
• Jon Niese never looked comfortable tonight, throwing 116 pitches over 5.2 innings. In no way should the word quality be attached to Jon’s start. He was forced to leave the game after walking the opposing pitcher with 2 outs in the top of the 6th. Tom Seaver is rolling over in his vineyard.
• The Mets came back three times tonight to take the lead.
