Lugo’s arm, bat help Mets handle Rockies again

NEW YORK—The Mets understand the depth of the hole they dug themselves into with a first half fractured by injuries and poor play, so much so that general manager Sandy Alderson all but guaranteed the team would be sellers by month’s end, barring the improbable.

And yet the second-half version of the Mets has looked like anything but sellers after steamrolling through their first two second-half games, putting up Coors Field numbers on the Rockies in Queens again in a 9-3 win at Citi Field on Saturday.

Lugo has provided some stability at the back-end of the rotation, of which the Mets are in dire need. He’s not the sexiest name but he’s likely to get a chance to prove that he deserves a spot in the rotation going into next season.

Taken from a different thread:

I know that this isn't going to happen and I am using this more to discuss a different topic (Mets hijack?) but what about Jose Reyes? Obviously, his overall numbers look bad (.225/.292/.389 on the season) but he is hitting .404/.431/.745 over his last 50 plate appearances. He has had miserable luck with respect to BABIP (still only .232 on season, and it was around .200 before this recent hot streak, career BABIP is around .300) His defense has been better at SS (acceptable there) but he was not very good at 3B, but he doesn't have a ton of experience there. He doesn't strike out a ton, and is drawing a good number of walks, and has been hitting for reasonable power as more than 40% of his hits have been for extra bases.

I know the Red Sox are not going to trade for Reyes but is he a bad player having a bad season, or is he a better player than his numbers might indicate?

I think he's gotten old early.
