NY Sports Dog: Jose Reyes Out of Step

Jose Reyes Out of Step

The numbers are downright ugly for the Mets leadoff hitter.

  • 1 for his last 21
  • 2 runs scored in his last 13 games
  • 1 stolen base in his last 12 games
  • 1 for 14 with runners in scoring position and 2 outs
  • .231 batting average with runners in scoring position on the year
  • .236 batting average in the Mets 13 losses

So what exactly is wrong with Jose Reyes?

With all the focus on David Wright, Oliver Perez, Jerry Manuel, and Omar Minaya, why aren't we discussing Reyes?

He has lost 70 points on his batting average in the last two weeks, and the Mets have gone 4-6.

His year, thus far, has been a disappointment at the plate, and his current struggles are downright awful. The carryover effect from the lack of hitting was on display Saturday when he failed to get down a bunt. It was then that we saw just a little bit of frustration from Reyes.

As Reyes go, so go the Mets, and right now he is stuck in reverse.

Let's hope the day off helped...something has to.

I agree with you. The frustration level in Reyes is rising.

He looked pretty pissed on Saturday after every at-bat.
