Yes last nights loss was difficult to swallow. Heading into Atlanta to face the Braves as a third place team with a .500 record would have been a moral victory. But dems be the breaks.
Last night Jose Reyes went 0-3 which lowered his batting average to what is still a Major League leading .342.
The ironic thing is that as of last night Jose is second in voting to Troy Tulowitzki in the National League Shortstop All Star Game voting. Troy has 1,828,509 votes while our M.VP has 1,241,553 and in a distant third is Jimmy Rollins of the Phillies with 999,537.
I feel that it is plain as day that Jose deserves to start this years All Star Game. He is the most exciting as well as dynamic player at that position.
So please go to www.Mets.com by clicking here, and vote as many times for your favorite Mets – primarily our best player at the moment – Jose Reyes !!!
And with that said…. HERE COMES THE INFAMY !!!!!
The New York Mets purchased the contract of middle reliever, Jack Aker from the Atlanta Braves on June 14, 1974. Jack was sidelined late in the season with a lower back starin,but he still managed to appear in 24 games, going 2-1 with 2 saves and a E.R.A of 3.48. He retired after the season ended and he immediately became a manager for the Mets minor league system from ’75-’82.
The New York Mets traded outfield prospect, Marvell Wynne and and minor league pitcher, Steve Senteney to the Pittsburgh Pirates for catcher, Junior Ortiz and minor league pitcher, Art Ray on June 14, 1983. Junior played two seasons with the Mets – mostly as a reserve catcher, and he hit a combined .236 with 23 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Wynee did have a play a couple of seasons with the Pirates before falling off the radar.
