Flush U: Reyes Deserves Criticism

My debut article for Flushing University is up. I discuss the controversies surrounding the recent three-game series in New York between the Mets and Phillies, and explain why Reyes is deserving of the criticism he’s received for his excessive celebrations.

I’ll be taking a look at the Phillies’ offense — which has been absolutely anemic — in the next couple days.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but the Marlins whooped on the Mets the last game of the year in 2007 to give us the N.L. East Champs title because of Reyes’ celebrations. Oh, yeah and also a fight !! Sorry Glavine was the brunt of that game.

    You’re wrong.

    The amount of baseball teams that were enraged by opposing players, but unable to do anything about it, is longer than the dead sea scrolls. Baseball is a difficult game – quite possible the most difficult – and hitting is its toughest aspect.

    You don’t just start hitting at will because you’re motivated by an a##hole on the other side.

    Glavine sucked that day, it wasn’t an aberration, and thats why he got pounded.

    The fact that the Marlins despised Reyes’ antics made it sweet for them…not possible.
