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.
