Things haven't gone so well for the New York Mets this season, both on and off the field. However, I've found 10 reasons to "think happy thoughts" about them from a fantasy aspect.

1. Jose Reyes is back! Until Cleveland Indians overachiever Asdrubal Cabrera went nuts this weekend, Reyes was the top shortstop on the ESPN Player Rater. Reyes is still 14th overall, and while I'd rank him third at the position (behind Troy Tulowitzki and Hanley Ramirez), the fact is Reyes is on pace for 59 stolen bases and 97 runs scored. His complete lack of power makes him look a little Juan Pierre-like, but still, whether he's a Met or a San Francisco Giant or whatever, Reyes is a top-25 player again, and at this point I'd take him over Carl Crawford. Would Mets ownership?
