MetsMerized Player Of The Week! (Week 18)

So Murphy and Reyes hit the DL last week – but as a fellow writer stated, this DL stint, if not a serious injury for Reyes, could do a number on his value in the offseason. It could help the Mets retain our star SS for the fturue, but it did make me question how […]
