Well, Jerry Manuel’s pregame team meeting has had no impact so far. The Mets had one hit through seven last night, and they have one hit through four tonight.
Manuel said he chose Argenis Reyes over Luis Castillo to start at second in this game mainly because the rookie brings energy and the team has had a habit of winning when he plays. Reyes fanned in his first at-bat.
At least Mike Pelfrey looks a lot better than he did when he faced the Nats last week at Shea.
