The Daily News is reporting that Jose Reyes is still having pain in his right leg while rehabbing in Port St. Lucie. He flew back to New York to be examined, again, by Mets team doctors.

I know that some have advocated for the injured Mets players to just shut it down for the season. And I recognize that there isn’t any point in coming back to make a playoff push for this season. That ship has sailed.

I would like to point out that if the injured Mets are ready to play that it would put a much better product on the field. Although the purpose of playing the season is to win, the Mets are also a business. Putting fannies in the seats and viewers on TV comes a close second to winning championships for the team. If the Mets can get Carlos Delgado, Carlos Beltran, and Reyes back on the field in September they should do it. At least give us a quality product to watch, even if the season is a goner.

About Dave Doyle

Although I don’t have a degree in journalism, I love writing about the New York Mets. I’m the typical writer without access. My only accessibility to the Mets is sitting in the stands (often the upper tank) and watching on TV like most fans. I’m not a member of the media, just a fan expressing opinions.

    I suspect that we will see Wagner, Delgado and Putz in the mix before we see Beltran, Reyes or Maine. Those three guys need to get work in before the off season.

    I doubt highly that Beltran is even remotely prepared to come back. We might see him in September.

      Beltran said that he’s about two weeks away from returning. That’s great if it’s true. But knowing the Mets track record, that means he’ll be ready in about two months.

        I also read that Beltran’s bone bruise hasn’t healed much and that he is still feeling pain when he runs. Bone bruises can take months to heal. It would make sense to shelf him.
        Maybe Putz can play short and Wagner can play center.
