The moment we’ve all been waiting for is here: New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes is playing like a productive baseball player.Well, at least we got that over with.
After throwing New York into high-stakes round of “the Waiting Game” from on 0-for-4 debut, Jose Reyes finally recorded his first hit in his New York Mets return.
Thanks to his third inning double — ripped down the third base line — for one second, at least, the collective Mets fanbase can forget about the controversial signing, and remember the good days of 60 stolen bases and countless base-hits.
Update: The Mets now lead the Marlins 4-1 heading to the fifth inning.
Meanwhile, Wilmer Flores is doing his best to keep his job at third base, crushing a baseball over the left field fence for the second time today, while simultaneously telling Reyes to, “Get out of here, bro.”
