Jose Reyes plays his rehab game, survives, returns to the Mets today

Jose Reyes

Jose Reyes played a rehab game at Coney Island yesterday and everything went just swell:  1 for 3 with a double and a run scored plus six innings at shortstop.  No problems, no fuss, and now it’s back to the Mets for him tonight to face the Cardinals.

And it’s not a moment too soon.  As D.J. notes over at Rotoworld’s Daily Dose, the Mets’ offense has fallen off a cliff since Reyes has been gone.  His .354/.398/.529 bat at the top of the order — plus the return of Carlos Beltran from his little bout with the flu — should mean a revitalized Mets attack tonight.  And barring any setbacks, David Wright comes back on Friday.

And if things don’t rebound for the Mets everyone will blame Wright, because that’s just autopilot, right?

    No, some people will blame Beltran.

    And some will blame Omar. Though the pleasant surprises this season were his acquisitions as much as the Bay-sized duds.
