Still awaiting outcome with Jose Reyes as Mets lose

The New York Mets lost to the Houston Astros at Tradition Field today by the score of 8-4. Johan Santana got the start and went 1 2/3 innings giving up 6 hits and 4 runs. He walked one, his problem was being up in the zone, his velocity was ok. I wouldn't worry about a guy like him, much like CC with the Yankees they have rough outings in the spring and there is no reason to panic, these guys know what they are doing and know what they have to do to be ready for the season. Clint Everts, Travis Blackley, Elmer Dessens and Sean Green each pitched perfect innings. Johan Santana had this to say courtesy of Matthew Cerrone on his metsblog.com "I was a little bit off with my mechanics, releasing the ball. The good thing is I felt good." Adam Rubin has a blog at the Daily News and he has more quotes from Johan. Offensively Ike Davis continued to tear it up with a solo homerun and Gary Matthews Jr. who is hitting 429 this spring had 3 hits and scored a couple of runs. I guess he was serious when he said he could be the leadoff guy. It is still early and I personally still think that Reyes should be the leadoff guy but if and when he comes back the Mets seem comitted to him in the 3 hole. I guess if that is the case Matthews is the leader for leadoff right now. The New York Mets will travel to Disney World to take on the Atlanta Braves at 1:00PM tomorrow.
