Mets fans were treated to the first glimpse of the future double play combo and 1 -2 punch in the batting order yesterday with the release of the first picture of Jose Reyes and Kaz Matsui practicing turning a double play. Matsui does not speak Spanish and Reyes does not speak Japanese, and neither speaks much English (along with adding 15 pounds this offseason, Reyes seems to have made great strides with his English this offseason as well), but Mets fans are hoping they get on the same page nonetheless. The Hot Corner is currently putting together an article featuring the Mets new dynamic duo and it should be posted on the weekend. Stay tuned.
