Google it if you are confused.

Several people sent me this — apparently it made the rounds among some of the more hardcore HBT commenters today — but I have no idea where it came from originally.  All I know is that it came from a Marlins fan with taste and discernment.

UPDATE: It was apparently on Deadspin yesterday.

Jose Reyes is hitless in 20 plate appearances to start the season

Mets backup infielder Jose Reyes pinch-hit and popped up in the top of the eighth inning of Thursday night’s game in Atlanta against the Braves. That ran his streak up to 20 consecutive hitless plate appearances to start the 2018 season. He has reached base once, however, on a walk, so there’s that.

Reyes, 34, signed a one-year, $2 million contract with the Mets near the end of January. At the time, the Mets hadn’t yet signed Todd Frazier, so Reyes was in the mix to contribute as a utilityman but he has operated as a bat off the bench for the most part this season.

One wonders how much longer the Mets are going to let Reyes flounder. According to FanGraphs, he has already been worth a half-win less than a replacement-level player. Only eight other players have been as bad or worse this season.
