The biggest name of the bunch is, of course, Jose Reyes, but it will certainly be interesting to see what the team does with Capuano and Hairston.  I wouldn’t mind seeing both return to roles similar to 2011 but for Capuano, who proved to be healthy and productive (though somewhat inconsistent), the price tag may have gone up a bit.

Seven Mets now Free agents...

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...

Fan Shot: Seems Like Old Times

While the Mets embark upon a future that may not include all-star shortstop and fan favorite Jose Reyes, I can’t help but notice how oddly familiar this all seems.

Mets once thought 5 years for Jose, now it’s 4

In talking to people close to the team, I believe Joel Sherman of the New York Post is correct when he reported last week that the Mets are likely to offer Jose Reyes a four-year deal, which he’ll probably view as ‘modest,’ like Andy Martino of the Daily News said this morning. Based on what I’m hearing from people around the game, the team and the player, it sounds to me...

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.
