Jose Reyes is taking the night off, but Hanley Ramirez will stay at third base

Prior to the season Ozzie Guillen said that Hanley Ramirez wouldn’t be asked to shift from third base to shortstop if Jose Reyes was out of the lineup for a short period of time and sure enough the manager is following through with that today.

Reyes is taking the night off against the Diamondbacks in the midst of a 3-for-20 slump and Guillen is leaving Ramirez at third base, instead giving Donnie Murphy the start at shortstop.

Emilio Bonifacio slides into the leadoff spot to replace Reyes, with Murpy taking over for Bonifacio in the second slot.

Reyes has hit just .205 with a .263 on-base percentage and .329 slugging percentage through 18 games of his six-year, $106 million contract.

    These two may have some of the most sexually ambiguous photos in baseball history

      They can’t hold a rubber ducky to Tweeter and Bryan Petersen.

    Reyes has taken virtually every night off so far this season. Why should tonight be any different?

    Reyes should never, ever, not in billion, gazillion years, have allowed the Loria mandate that he should cut his hair, stand. Pretty much all his mojo was in them dreads. * sigh *

    Take the night off, Mojo-Less Reyes. Take the night off and don’t stand too close to them scissors, for they are your doom. While you’re lurking there, having your night off, if you see Mike “Iron Giant” Stanton, tell him I said “hi” and that I miss him.

    Horrible chemistry up and that Marlin roster. Reyes is a fraud too.
