Found November 23, 2011 on Matthew Cerrone's Mets Blog:
Based on the current market for shortstops, “It is looking more and more like the Phillies will either have to sign Rollins, make an unlikely run at Jose Reyes, or resign themselves to playing 2012 with a huge offensive drop off at short stop,” according to David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News. Jim Salisbury of Comcast Philly says that, while the Phillies are interested in bringing Rollins back, they are talking with a number of other candidates to fill the position. Matthew Cerrone: There hasn’t been a whole lot of buzz around Rollins, probably because the Phillies are waiting for another team to make the first offer (like the Mets are doing with Jose), but Rollins is probably waiting to see what happens with Reyes. I have heard the Brewers and Giants are among a handful of teams that have interest in Jimmy. The word in Philly is that Rollins is seeking a five-year deal, though most people around the game expect him to be offered three years and an option (and around $12 mil...

How I Stopped Worrying About Jose Reyes

I read the papers, same as the next guy. I hear all the doom and gloom from my favorite Mets MSM writers: Adam Rubin, Steve Popper, Marty Noble and Andy McCullough. Every day, it’s a done-deal that Jose Reyes is going…somewhere. San Francisco? Detroit? Milwaukee? Boston? Miami? Yep, might as well resign myself to the fact that Jose’s a goner. It’s in print, right...

Mets offer Reyes Arby...

Photo by Michael BaronMets offered arbitration to Jose Reyes, ensuring themselves two draft picks if he walks.  This is nothing more then a formality, for Reyes to accept arbitration he could only receive a one year deal.  This is more about the Mets receiving compensation picks in the event that they can't re-sign him to a multi-year deal.  In a formality that allows them...

Mets offer Jose Reyes arbitration

The Mets have offered Jose Reyes salary arbitration, tweets Ken Davidoff of Newsday. Reyes is considered a Type-A free agent, so should he depart, the Mets would be guaranteed two draft picks as compensation. If he signs with a team that finished in the top 15 in 2011, the Mets would get their first round pick and a pick in between the first and second round. However, if he signs...

Mets Thoughts: Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

Last week, Adam Rubin posed a question to his readers that seven days later I still can’t find the words to compose an appropriate response. But I’ll take a stab at it.Mets fans, how do you feel about the prospect of seeing Reyes come back to Queens in a garish Miami uniform? Can a New York team ever justify losing a star player to a team from a smaller market, and what, if...

Mets still in exploratory stages of off-season

Michael Baron: In talking with fans both here and on Twitter, it seems a lot of people are anxious for the Mets to make some kind of moves, and for good reason. However, the new CBA just got signed, and the course the Mets take has a lot to do with where Jose Reyes decides to go, and Sandy has said that process will be slow. The winter meetings run from December 5 – 8 in Dallas...

What Mets fans should be thankful for

As we sit down to feast on Thanksgiving, I thought today would be a great day to celebrate for what we, as Mets fans, should be thankful. Many a Met fan these days are of the despondent and cynical version and it’s hard to blame them as the Mets have continued to disappoint their fan base for the last few years. And now we continuously have to worry about if Jose Reyes will leave...

Daniel Murphy, Ruben Tejada or someone else at 2B

In a post to Mets 360, Brian Joura explains why Daniel Murphy should be the primary choice at second base - regardless of whether or not the Mets retain Jose Reyes this winter. “The surprise shouldn’t be that the Mets want to play Murphy at second base if Reyes leaves,” Joura says, “The surprise should be that he’s not the first option regardless of who plays shortstop...

Video: Jerry Seinfeld’s dog makes a plea for Jose Reyes to stay

OK, so I take back everything I said about "Jose Reyes" being a terrible name for Jerry Seinfeld's new dog. Don't get me wrong: I still contend that he doesn't want a lifelong reminder of a big disappointment every time the hound rubs against his feet or digs up his garden. He should have gone the safe route and named him 'Kranepool.' But I admit that...

Jerry Seinfeld’s baseball allegiance is pretty well known in the sports world to be the New York Mets. He hasn’t kept quiet as the team has struggled, and wants the team to resign free agent shortstop Jose Reyes.

Jose Reyes Seinfeld The Puppy Begs Jose Reyes The Human To Stay With The Mets

Jerry Seinfeld is a Mets fan, for some masochistic reason. Being a Mets fan means always having to say they're sorry. But one silver lining is the very real chance of re-signing Jose Reyes, so that they can pay him $15 million when he's 36 years old, which is the soonest possible time the team will be good again.
