ESPN New York reported today that Jose Reyes will move back to the leadoff spot in the batting order for tonight’s game against the Marlins. Angel Pagan will bat third.
The move is probably to change things up a bit as the Mets’ offense has been stagnant over the past few games. The Mets have only scored seven runs in the past seven games and have lost each game. They are now four games out of first place and are tied with the Marlins. They are just one game ahead of the once-reeling Braves.
Reyes did not produce enough in the third hole. He hit way too many balls in the air and didn’t drive in the number of runs a typical No. 3 hitter would.
What do you think of this move?
