Here are summaries of updates about Jose Reyes from the last two days… When asked if the Mets have a chance to sign Reyes, SI’s Jon Heyman replied: Photo: By Michael G. Baron (2011)
“Slim, though not none. There’s little evidence the Mets would go over five years for Reyes, the very talented and beloved but injury-prone homegrown star. And that just isn’t likely to be good enough. Reyes is known to want to stay in Queens, but the cash-strapped Mets, who have spoken of cutting their payroll by $30-to-40 million just don’t seem very likely to be close to the high bigger. “The Giants, Cardinals, Brewers, Phillies and many more teams could be in the mix. Marlins star Hanley Ramirez said he’d move over to third base for Reyes, but that seems like a waste of Ramirez. The Braves aren’t likely to have enough money to win a bidding war here and the Phillies will try for their own Jimmy Rollins first (they also aren’t seen as a team that will step out when their payroll is already at $170 million). “Reyes would be a big perfect fit for the Giants, who badly need offense and would like to better manufacture runs in their big ballpark, which isn’t so dissimilar from the Mets’ own Citi Field. The Cardinals are concentrating their efforts on Pujols, though they will need a shortstop.”

“Sources familiar with the team’s thinking have maintained that the Mets are unwilling to offer six or seven years, and might be uncomfortable with five.”
