I think we as Met fans should all give our SS a big thank you for doing the right thing.
The best news out of Queens this season may be the fact that Jose Reyes is NOT changing agents to Scott Boras and will remain with Peter Greenberg.
Greenberg must’ve been sweating bullets knowing his client was meeting with Boras. I don’t know how you let your client sit down with Scott friggin’ Boras so he must’ve had no choice.
I gotta say I’m shocked Reyes didn’t follow Boras down the diabolical rabbit hole he creates for his highest profile clients.
If Jose went with Boras he was finished in NY… or at least in Queens.
You gotta figure Boras told Jose he would get him more money than Greenberg or anyone else could possibly land.
He probably told him he would have to leave the Mets because Boras’ clients ALWAYS take the highest offer and these cash strapped Wilpons wouldn’t be able to match someone’s offer.
Or perhaps he told Jose how the Wilpons can be duped again. Fooled into bidding against themselves.
But Jose didn’t want a part of whatever Boras was selling and THAT is the very reason I believe Jose will remain a Met.
If you recall Jose didn’t take a greedy contract last time. The Mets signed him before Wright and Jose got much less. I believe Greenberg was his agent on that deal too which leads me to believe we’ve got a very good chance of getting another reasonable deal for Jose.
Perhaps Jose isn’t the greedy athlete we all assume they all are. Is it possible playing for the Mets means more to him than and extra 10-15M on a 100M dollar deal.
Maybe I’m dreaming here but that’s the vibe I get.
As for the game - It wasn’t meant to be. We didn’t hit till the 9th - Niese was so-so at best and the Mets look thrashed.
Luckily they’ve got a day off today.
