    will hanley return to his old self? oh of course a team like the marlins doesnt matter to the baseball world

    You mean no scouts believe Jeter can borrow doc brown’s delorean and go back to 1999 to “relearn” his hitting skills from his old self to save his future.

    I love NY writers. The past few years they drag Reyes through the coals for being injured, having mental lapses, and under-performance. Now he’s a player the Mets need to keep to build around.

      NY sports writers & double-talk. A shameful yet long-held tradition. ☹ ☁
      Apparently these guys are ‘exempt’ from scrutiny by their own decree.

  4. I think Jeter’s best days are behind him….

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      At age 36…you think? Can’t you apply that to anyone not named Barry Bonds?

  5. JavyNYY 4 years ago

    Check Jeter today… I think he’s getting tired of all the bad talk these days. 3 for 3 HR

  6. Totally unrelated, but how bad is Bay’s contract looking right now? The guy looks absolutely lost, Collins had better give Ike the five spot in the lineup soon

  7. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    OMG…..RF is where most HRS are hit and Jeter hasn’t hit any so far this year. NYS is actually tougher on RH hitters vs LH hitters.

    did I just use”OMG”? My apologies.

  8. JavyNYY 4 years ago

    Derek Jeter – 4 for 4, 2 HR’s

  9. Forget Reyes, amazing talent but he is just another hot shot in his walk year that will have a great season get signed to a huge contract and do nothing after, a la carlos beltran

    • YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

      Before he had hisinjury issues Beltran had 4 years where he avg’d 29 hrs, 20 sb and had a solid .275/.360 line w/ good defense. No exactly a chump.

    • Sylvan 4 years ago

      What are you talking about? Beltran has averaged almost 5 WAR per season since coming to the Mets, even with losing a year’s time to injuries. He’s hit .280/.366/.500 with four All-Star appearances and three well-deserved Gold Gloves. Any team would kill to be guaranteed production like that from a seven-year contract.

  10. Where do some of these “reporters” get their info from. Ridic.

  11. grownice 4 years ago

    Your only getting a “massive haul” if he signs an extention, if not, your only going to get a moderately huge haul unfortunately.

  12. moses0507 4 years ago

    Thats true, but the Mets won’t trade him unless they get what they want. Better off keeping him and losing him at the end of the season and get the draft picks.

  13. chicowalker 4 years ago

    From what I’ve heard (mostly on here), it seems as though the draft compensation system might be changing. I don’t see the Mets keeping Reyes and Wright because they are going to be cutting payroll, and signing Reyes will mean that they have about $70 locked into 4 players for at least the next two seasons. Bay and Santana probably aren’t tradeable, which leaves Wright and Reyes on the chopping block for payroll flexibility. The Mets simply don’t have the minor league reinforcements to be that top heavy with payroll.

  14. phoenix2042 4 years ago

    He is hitting more ground balls than ever before, which could mean a higher BA (eventually) but less power. Interesting to see if that new batted ball profile sticks and he can no longer be relied upon for 20 homers going forward.

  15. moses0507 4 years ago

    I can agree with everything you said, except David Wright will not traded unless Mets are blown away. Reyes should stay but Mets won’t want to pay him.

  16. nictonjr 4 years ago

    I wouldn’t count K-Rod out. He’s on pace for 54 gfs. A couple hot streaks and he could get to 60…

  17. chicowalker 4 years ago

    They are going to cut payroll to about $110M (that’s a generous estimate), it’s about $145M now. If they sign Reyes, they’ll have at least $70M of that tied up in 4 guys. That’s not sustainable when you consider all the holes they have.

  18. mookie_and_doc 4 years ago

    There is no way the Mets let that option vest. I repeat…no way. They’re not going to be in contention so there’s no point in continuing to pitch him when he gets close.

  19. Saying that a ball would have been gone in Yankee Stadium is like saying it was an infield popup in any other MLB stadium…it means absolutely nothing because many HRs at Yankee Stadium are outs/doubles in other places.

  20. chicowalker 4 years ago

    Yeah, the Ballpark in Arlington is known for being really treacherous for hitters. They might as well have played the game in Yellowstone. If it wasn’t out in Texas, Yankee stadium is the only stadium where it would have gone out.

  21. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    I’ve been dissapointed in Jeter this year. Not so much because of the results but moreso because he seems uncoachable. Now I’ve never played beyond the high school level so I’ll be the last to question a hitters comfortability with his own swing but clearly it’s flawed and needs to be fixed.

  22. ericbrat20 4 years ago

    Oh hey look at that Jeter jumped his OPS from .597 to .680 in ONE GAME. Sounds like something that can happen early in a year. Let’s come back to this argument in let’s say 2-3 months when slumps and hot streaks tend to even themselves out.

  23. Left field is deep in Yankee Stadium. ALso you have to factor in the hot air in Texas which lets fly balls fly longer. It wasn’t actually that hard hit and I was shocked to see that ball hit the wall. O ver the head of the outfielder yeah but off the wall was shocking.

  24. My point is its useless to say that it would have been a HR in another park…that’s like saying that David Wright flyout would have been a HR in Philadelphia…stupid, useless speculation

  25. woadude 4 years ago

    Yes…Hell is hot…very hot…

  26. Vmmercan 4 years ago

    It’s true, that Yankee stadium left field is like what, 200 feet? Yankee Stadium has definitely given a righty hitter like Jeter so many undeserved home runs. I mean, go check all the stats, Yankee Stadium is soooo beneficial to righties for power.

  27. chicowalker 4 years ago

    Umm, it’s great for RH hitters that tend to go to right center and don’t ever pull the ball. You know, like Jeter. I think it’s hilarious that you failed so miserably at being sarcastic. Have you ever seen Jeter pull a ball? Ever? The left fielder can take a nap when he’s up.

  28. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    318 to be exact and like “chicowalker” below says, Jeter rarely pulls the ball. Both hrs today in Arlington were to RF/RCntr.

  29. YanksFanSince78 4 years ago

    Can we please get over this idea than NYS is a bandbox? In the early part of the year RF is a HR haven. In the late summer and into Sept/Oct it isn’t. LF and CF are much tougher.

    please explain your credentials on why you can insult my home?

    I am born and raised manhattan so i find it curious how tough people can be from behind a keyboard.

  31. Encarnacion's Parrot 4 years ago

    With the type of team the Phillies currently have, and I personally feel the Marlins are going to be a very good team again for a few years, the Mets should strongly consider a 2-3 year rebuild.

  32. Vmmercan 4 years ago

    The 2009 Twins would like a word with you….

  33. Vmmercan 4 years ago

    Not to mention, Jeter’s two home runs were both easily over 380 feet, the 2nd one clearing the 407 sign. How many stadiums hold that kind of power? You’re attacking where it’s unwarranted.

  34. Bino9 4 years ago

    Jeter is just too old to have his swing fixed. Not to mention he’s too much into his own ego to allow another to teach him anything at this point in his career

  35. I’m a bitter Mets fan who hates that the dumbass Wilpons built a stadium where it is actually difficult to hit HR’s to rightfield
