Reyes currently leads the NL in the following categories--
- Batting Average - .341
- Hits - 141
- Triples - 16
- Runs Scored - 78
And if the Mets (55-54) continue to play decent baseball, it betters his chances even more.
What happens in the off-season when he becomes a free agent and commands a monster contract, I guess, is a story for another day. That's when things may get ugly for the cash-strapped Mets.
As for the mascot--
Yes Mr. Met, your prayers have been answered..... For now.
