Anthony DiComo of mlb.com tweets that Jose Reyes will not be in tonight’s lineup.
Also the Mets have not signed LeBron James.
Andy McCullough has the full lineup.

Feliciano 8, Tejada 6, Wright 5, Ike 3, Frenchy 9, Carter 7, Blanco 2, Cora 4, Santana 1
Damn I hope Santana doesn’t get mad at Carter if he drops a flyball
7/1/2010-3:56pm at 3:56 pm (UTC -4)
Talk about a super sub line up… uff da.
7/1/2010-3:48pm at 3:48 pm (UTC -4)
Maybe Reyes is on his way to Akron, OH…
Jeter should go…
7/1/2010-3:55pm at 3:55 pm (UTC -4)
No Reyes, no Pagan, no Bay, some might add no Barajas, I won’t go all the way to no Castillo cuz he’s on the DL.
Speaking of which, I find the reasons for Pagan not being on it less and less compelling with each passing day. Played 1 game in the last 7, allegedly can’t play against RH pitchers, the next 4 scheduled starters against the Mets are RH. I hope he justifies his presence on the bench with a key hit against a LH reliever sometime this weekend.

This just in !!! Angel Pagan has been benches for sleeping with Manuels daughter!! News @ 11
7/1/2010-3:59pm at 3:59 pm (UTC -4)
Might as well play Tatis.
Tejada better stay healthy, with Castillo and Reyes both out, we really need him and someone please put bubble wrap around Wilmer Flores.
7/1/2010-4:07pm at 4:07 pm (UTC -4)
looks like a ST game. On the road.
But, seeing how the Mets love to do the unexpected, this will be the game where they score 8 runs for Johan.
I just hope it will enough!
oh, and nice to see the mets didn’t learn from this carrying guys for a week + as a dead spot on the bench. Pagan should have been on the DL days ago. Hell, might as well put reyes on too, since we know that is going to happen eventually.

YankeesWFAN He did indeed RT @joetucciarone: if I read alex’s lips correctly I think he told jeter that he thought the hr was a walk off
Hahahahaha Arod doesn’t even know what inning it is when he plays!

For you folks that are too clool to be ESPN insiders, your favorite punching bag Buster Olney did a survey to 12 GM’s asking them 5 questions about other GM’s:
If you think trades are all about player value, team need and contract terms, think again. In many cases, midseason deals come down to the style of deal-makers (GMs) and how they get along. With a month before the trade deadline, we polled a dozen GMs about the deal-making traits of their peers. Because who would know better? We let them yak anonymously. Because who wants PC answers?
EASIEST GMs TO MAKE A DEAL WITH
Jim Hendry, Cubs (5 votes) “Hendry is the type of person you’d feel comfortable going out and having a beer with. He’s a backslapping type of guy, and that really works for making trades.”
Ken Williams, White Sox (3) “It’s either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no,’ and it’s immediate. He knows what he’s willing to do.”
Larry Beinfest, Marlins (1) “Absolutely no BS. The conversations are short, a quick e-mail, and when he says he’ll get back to you on a proposal, it’s usually the same day.”
Theo Epstein, Red Sox (1) “He goes into each discussion knowing what he wants and how he values his own players. Very decisive.”
Doug Melvin, Brewers (1) “He’s very good at seeing how deals could line up. The conversations will move along.”
Billy Beane, Athletics (1) “He’s always looking to make a fair deal.”
TOUGHEST GMs TO MAKE A DEAL WITH
Brian Sabean, Giants (7) “I can’t get him to return a call. I’ve had two baseball conversations with him in the past five years.”
Ned Colletti, Dodgers (4) “When you’re talking to him, it feels like you’re dealing with five different people, and you don’t know whether it’s the owner, the scouting director or the manager who really holds the power.”
Neal Huntington, Pirates (1) “It feels formal talking with him, to the point of being uncomfortable.”
GMs WHO ARE THE BIGGEST CARD PLAYERS
Huntington (3) “I like him, but you don’t ever feel at ease. He’s a good person, but he’s just very polished, well-spoken, to the point where it’s tough to know what’s really going on.”
Colletti (3) “He’s not going to share information or make a move until he absolutely has to.”
Omar Minaya, Mets (1) “He’ll give you a ridiculous proposal that might just kill the conversation. He’ll offer you a $5 bill and ask for two 10s in return.”
Getty ImagesMets fans can’t complain that Omar Minaya doesn’t shoot for the stars.
Walt Jocketty, Reds (1) “I find talking with him to be the biggest waste of time, because he never commits to anything. He talks to you as if he’s interested, and then you never hear back from him.”
Ed Wade, Astros (1) “He will always talk with you, but it seems like he’s never willing to put himself in a position to risk anything.”
Mike Rizzo, Nationals (1) “He’ll give you the kind of proposals that just end conversations. They’re very one-sided.”
Andrew Friedman, Rays (1) “He’s very strategic in his dealings. I don’t think he ever opens up.”
Jon Daniels, Rangers (1) “He comes across as very, very careful.”
IF YOU NEEDED A GM, WHOM WOULD YOU HIRE?
Epstein (8) “Theo’s career has been helped by being in Boston, but I think that if you had put him in Kansas City five years ago, they’d be pretty good right now. If you were an owner, it would be hard to find someone better.”
Josh Byrnes, Diamondbacks (2) “I think he’s smart as hell, he’s well thought-out, and he’s a good person.”
Friedman (1) “I know he’s young, but look at what they’ve accomplished organizationally. He’s the best GM in the game.”
Beinfest (1) “He makes the most out of the talent he’s got.”

And just like Matt Cerrone I am too CLOOL to use spell check.

Thank you for the full article. I was just reading the free teaser which dealt with Sabean never returning calls and I thought it was hilarious. How can you have this job and just not bother to call people back?
7/1/2010-4:51pm at 4:51 pm (UTC -4)
no Amaro Jr? or Cash?
7/1/2010-4:59pm at 4:59 pm (UTC -4)
You are the only person I know that actually has a ESPN Insider account.
The next question is, WHY?
7/1/2010-5:00pm at 5:00 pm (UTC -4)
I am way too cheap to actually pay to read Olney. Hell, if I had Bill Gate’s bank account, I still wouldn’t pay to read Olney.
7/1/2010-5:04pm at 5:04 pm (UTC -4)
7/1/2010-5:05pm at 5:05 pm (UTC -4)
it’s only like $5/month… though i’m too cheap to pay for it, i think it’s relatively useful especially for fantasy sports.
7/1/2010-5:07pm at 5:07 pm (UTC -4)
You have one also Kistics?
7/1/2010-5:10pm at 5:10 pm (UTC -4)
no i don’t but i did subscribe it for one year.
7/1/2010-5:29pm at 5:29 pm (UTC -4)
It’s like $20 a year and I like the content I get out of it. Also instead of getting their magazine, my copy is sent to some some US Battleship.
7/1/2010-5:30pm at 5:30 pm (UTC -4)
That’s cool I never knew they did that.
7/1/2010-4:52pm at 4:52 pm (UTC -4)
F-in artificial turf……
I would prefer the Mets never go back to PR to play. Nothing good ever seems to come out of it.
Now, if the “C” lineup they are rolling out tonight can do some damage, that will be a good start to putting the series behind us!
And maybe reyes really does just need an extra day and some therapy. Cross your fingers.
7/1/2010-5:06pm at 5:06 pm (UTC -4)
i really hope this is precautionary thing. last time reyes had day-to-day status….. eek… i don’t even want to think about it
7/1/2010-5:11pm at 5:11 pm (UTC -4)
So I am kind of surprised not much news from the Reyes thing so far.
7/1/2010-5:14pm at 5:14 pm (UTC -4)
Eh, just make it up. There’s no consequences anyway.
7/1/2010-5:17pm at 5:17 pm (UTC -4)
Wow who pissed in your cereal bowl today?
7/1/2010-5:39pm at 5:39 pm (UTC -4)
7/1/2010-5:41pm at 5:41 pm (UTC -4)
Ahhhh Well when life throws you lemons make lemonade. Seems like Mo beat TRS to the punch.
7/1/2010-5:42pm at 5:42 pm (UTC -4)
I thought he Montezuma’s revenged his Poi.
7/1/2010-5:43pm at 5:43 pm (UTC -4)
7/1/2010-5:59pm at 5:59 pm (UTC -4)
Just reading all the panic about Reyes in “other” areas.
7/1/2010-6:06pm at 6:06 pm (UTC -4)
Where is this panic of which you speak? Inquiring minds want to know.
7/1/2010-6:08pm at 6:08 pm (UTC -4)
Oh forget it I see it’s FWICG.com
7/1/2010-5:58pm at 5:58 pm (UTC -4)
all i know is Santana better be sharp tonight as those runs should be even harder to come by tonight.
7/1/2010-6:05pm at 6:05 pm (UTC -4)
metsrmyboys July 1, 2010 at 5:44 pm
nooooo this is awful news im sorry. yes beltran is good but id rather not have that snobby bad attitude on the game. francoure is playing great and bay isnt do the best but its new yorkâ€¦ we cant have that much luck in 1 year and pagan should be back tomorrow the boys on sny are saying. i hope carter goes down and feliciano pagan stay up. beltran should be a backup he has not earned his role starting center field
7/1/2010-6:46pm at 6:46 pm (UTC -4)
Ahhh the lunatic frnge
7/1/2010-7:16pm at 7:16 pm (UTC -4)
I hope Pagan is back tomorrow. It’s starting to get a little lengthy with him….And since they started him the other day, if they finally decide to DL him, they can’t retro it back.
On both Pagan and Reyes, as long as they come out of the other side of the ASB, healed, healthy, ready to go, I’ll be happy. Not panicking unless they’re still nursing injuries after that break….
7/1/2010-7:17pm at 7:17 pm (UTC -4)
Oh, and the conspiracy theories abound….Gary speculating watching Ike these past few days running, it looks like he’s nursing some injury as well.
ASB can’t come soon enough.
