It’s impossible to know what Sandy’s really thinking about the Reyes situation. It’s obvious he would like Jose back but what’s the breaking point in regards to contract terms?
He said years committed is more important than yeah salary which makes sense. But what really piqued my interest is this quote from Alderson:
“The greater issue is what effect it has on the relationship between the fans and the team. And, that’s always a consideration. There are a handful of players with whom fans identify and in our case Jose is one of them. It doesn’t determine what we will or won’t do, but we have to take it in to account and we are.”
Is this a savvy PR move letting the fans know he thinks and cares about us while knowing full well the Wilpons won’t spend the money on Jose?
Or is this a clue telling us he is very motivated to do everything he can to resign Reyes???
Prob a combo of both but I gotta say statements like this really stick in my mind…
