Jose Reyes made his return to Citi Field on Tuesday night for the time in a Marlins uniform, and the reaction was predictably mixed. Reyes was given no choice but to leave New York last winter, as they team didn’t even try to keep him. Educated fans understand that, whereas morons like the ones you see in the video above feel slighted by Reyes’ departure.

As you can see, a group of fans with Reyes’ name, number and a red X on their shirts taunted the Marlins shortstop during batting practice. They yelled “No loyalty!” and “All about the cash!” among other things, since Reyes was apparently supposed to do the right thing and take half the money Miami offered him to stay in New York. After the game, Reyes told reporters he was not surprised by the booing.

“It doesn’t surprise me because I play for another team now,” he said according to MLB.com. “Like I said, no hard feelings. I just tried to win this game, but unfortunately we lost it.”

It doesn’t surprise me, either. But that doesn’t make it any less classless.
