The New York Mets have met with representatives for Jose Reyes, to begin the process of trying to re-sign him.
BEST OF MAXIM
The union published an official list of free agents, which included seven Mets from the 2011 roster. Of course, the biggest name on our list is Jose Reyes, the others were all minor role players on a mediocre team so I don't think any of them are significant loses. Where do I stand on Jose Reyes, I'd like to see him return but not at any cost. At one point I thought...
According to David Lennon of Newsday, teams are lining up for Jose Reyes, which could make it a tough market for Reyes.
However, Lennon says the Mets should also not elminate themselves from contention until the team believes they are “priced out.”
Matthew Cerrone: I know it seems bleak right now, and I know it’s natural for reporters and talk show hosts to hate on the Mets...
Well the World Series is finally over. The parade is over. No more baseball until next spring!!! ARGGGH!!!. As we head into our last couple of days before we change the clocks back and get thrown into darkness until early next year we wonder the fate of our shortstop.
The Mets have a couple of days to bargain with Reyes and his agent and there is some rumors that the Mets will not take
I’m very glad to see that the Wilpons finally agreed to change the color of the outfield walls to blue. I still can’t for the life of me understand what the logic was behind black and orange, but thankfully that chapter of Citi Field is now behind us.
While I’m quite pleased with the aesthetic and cosmetic changes, the more important thing will be the new slimmed down...

There are better fits, places that give him a better chance to win, probably...
If you asked me during the season if I felt Reyes was coming back, I would have confidently stated, yes! However, now, I’m not so sure. I mean, Reyes is an extremely gifted player — injuries aside — and if a guy like Jayson Werth can get a 7-year deal and Carl Crawford can net $140 million then why wouldn’t Jose?
I can go on forever about how talented a player he is, what...
The New York Mets have no plans to make an offer to Jose Reyes before the window of exclusivity with the free-agent shortstop closes on Thursday, a person familiar with the situation said this week.
SPEAKING PUBLICLY for the first time about Jose Reyes since the shortstop became a free agent on Sunday, general manager Sandy Alderson reiterated what the Daily News reported on Friday: The Mets will not begin with an offer designed to overwhelm the shortstop, and the team does not expect a a resolution for several months.
The Mets do not plan to make an offer to free-agent shortstop Jose Reyes anytime soon, general manager Sandy Alderson said Monday, nor do they expect Reyes to sign before December.
Unlike CC Sabathia, Jose Reyes will test the free-agent market when other teams can start bidding, and that likely doesn’t bode well for the Mets.“There are better fits, places that give him a better chance to win, probably,” David Cone said of the shortstop, who can be contacted...
Seven Mets were listed by the Players' Association as free agents Sunday, but all winter intrigue in Flushing will involve one name: Jose Reyes.
The Mets signed a speedy base-stealing threat yesterday, but it wasn’t Jose Reyes.
The team hired former major league outfielder Tom Goodwin as its first-base coach, completing the coaching staff for next season.
Goodwin, 43, hit .268 over 14 major league seasons and was primarily a center fielder, spending...
In case you missed it, this past weekend:
Jose Reyes, Willie Harris, Chris Young, Chris Capuano, Miguel Batista, and Jason Isringhausen have joined 142 other players in filing for free agency.
The Mets officially named Tom Goodwin as their first base coach. He joins Dan Warthen (pitching coach), Dave Hudgens (hitting coach), Bob Geren (bench coach), Tim Teufel (third base...
