The Mets win two in a row!

The Mets (6-8) won their second in a row and third in four games, and Pelfrey has been a big reason. In his previous appearance, on Saturday, Pelfrey got the first save of his career when he pitched the 20th inning of a 2-1 victory in St. Louis…….

The question for the Mets is ……

Can they get men home?

As in the last few years…They just leave too many people on base…..

This years pitching is fine so far……

But I need the team to be healthy AFTER THE ALL -STAR break!

Reyes went 4 for 5 in support of starter Mike Pelfrey (3-0), who pitched seven innings to extend his scoreless streak to 19 innings.

“You love looking behind you and seeing him smiling and having a good time,” Pelfrey said of Reyes. “It’s fun watching him.”

Reyes, who missed almost a year with hamstring and thyroid problems, started this season a week late and did not start Monday’s game, a 6-1 victory. When Manager Jerry Manuelscratched Reyes then, he said Reyes needed a rest as he struggled to get back his timing and sharpness. Reyes was hitting .150.

But Manuel also predicted “the next time you see him on the field, you’ll see some things you haven’t seen before” this season.

After Reyes raised his average to .222 Tuesday, Manuel chuckled and said, “Every now and then I can be right about something.”

Ain’t this crazy!…I’m happy for just two wins????

Jose Reyes on his way back to the Mets!

Jose Reyes has a shot to be the Mets' Opening Day lineup after team doctors clear the shortstop to resume baseball activities.

AALRIGHT!………..

According to a team spokesman, Reyes’ thyroid levels have returned to normal, less than two weeks after the Mets said they expected him be out anywhere from two to eight weeks because of elevated thyroid levels.

Reyes had been at home in New York, under doctors’ orders not to exercise until tests cleared him.

His return gives him less than two weeks to be ready for Opening Day, and GM Omar Minaya was cautious in speaking of that possibility.

“As far as Opening Day, we don’t know,” said Minaya. “We’ll see how Jose comes along. We’re going to have to build his stamina up, and where he’s going to be in two weeks, we don’t know.

Jose Reyes gets a visit from the FBI……….

Federal agents spoke with Mets' Jose Reyes regarding his association with Dr. Anthony Galea.

Mets shortstop Jose Reyes said Sunday he met with federal investigators last week about a Canadian doctor accused of selling an unapproved drug known as Actovegin.

Dr. Anthony Galea, who also has treated golfer Tiger Woods and several other professional athletes, is facing four drug-related charges in his country. Galea’s assistant also has been charged in the U.S. for having HGH and another drug while crossing the border in September.

SI.com reported Saturday night that federal officials have told several athletes to expect grand jury subpoenas in the case. The Web site cited three anonymous sources familiar with the investigation.

The New York Times reported in December, citing anonymous sources, that the FBI opened an investigation into Galea based in part on medical records found on his computer relating to several professional athletes.

Reyes said he met with investigators for about 45 minutes at the Mets’ spring facility after they contacted him Thursday morning. One of his agents, Chris Leible, also was present.

“They just asked me basically how I met the guy and stuff like that and what he put in my body,” Reyes said. “I explained to them what he (was) doing. … I don’t worry about anything because I didn’t do anything wrong.”

Galea is known for a blood-spinning technique – platelet-rich plasma therapy – that is designed to help athletes recover from injuries. Reyes, who missed much of last season with right leg problems, said he spent five days in Toronto in September and was treated by Galea three times.

Reyes said investigators asked him if he used HGH.

“They asked me if he injected me with that. I say ‘No,”’ Reyes said. “What we do there, basically, he took my blood out, put it in some machines, spin it out and put it back in my leg. So I explained to them that.”

Reyes said he felt better for a while after the treatment but his leg still didn’t respond when he tried to push it. The shortstop had surgery in October to clean up some scar tissue remaining from a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee.

The Daily News of New York was the first to report Reyes had met with investigators.

This heads-up from TPL……
