Bringing In Walls Is Like Adding a 30-HR Hitter, But Reyes’ Game Could Suffer

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...

Gooden, Cone, and Leiter all believe Jose Reyes may move on

Well a near full rotation of former Mets pitchers have now weighed in on the Jose Reyes‘s pending free agency.  According to Dan Martin of the New York Post,  David Cone recently said that he believes other teams may present the All-Star shortstop with a better opportunity: Photo by Michael G. Baron There are better fits, places that give him a better chance to win, probably...

Yankees apprehensive about Oswalt's back issues

New York Yankee supporters shouldn't expect to see veteran pitcher Roy Oswalt in pinstripes next season.Reports out of New York suggest the club is "very worried" about Oswalt's history of back problems. The free-agent righthander has two degenerative disks in his lower back and has had a series of cortisone shots over the years.The 34-year-old was limited to 23...

Chances are slim for Reyes returning to the Mets

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.

Life without Reyes is a reality I’m not ready for

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...

Cone: Mets may lose Reyes

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...

Mets plan to lowball Reyes 

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.

Mets will take time before making Reyes offer

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.

Reyes ready to go free

Seven Mets were listed by the Players' Association as free agents Sunday, but all winter intrigue in Flushing will involve one name: Jose Reyes.

Mets Weekend Review: In Case You Missed It

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...

’99 Faltered, But Dotel Ain’t Done

The “we” and the “us” was not at all out of line, nevertheless I found it surprising how much Octavio Dotel engaged in first-person plural pronouns when interviewed after the St. Louis Cardinals won the 2011 World Series. He hasn’t been a Cardinal much longer than he’s been most anything else in the big leagues, but  his champagne-soaked t-shirt and cap didn’t deceive...

Astros Unlikely To Be Major Players In Free Agency

The Astros went into full blown rebuilding mode by trading Lance Berkman, Roy Oswalt, Hunter Pence, and Michael Bourn over the last 15 months, and the team is now focused on youth and building from within. As part of that process, GM Ed Wade told MLB.com's Brian McTaggart that Houston is unlikely to be a major player in free agency this offseason... "We'll do all...
