BMF found it very interesting to hear Jose Reyes declare without hesitation the Mets made no offer and made zero effort to retain him.
This is in direct contrast to Sandy Alderson who reported the Mets were very much in it fri and sat night.
Hmmmm so who do we think might be telling the truth? I’m going with Reyes since he’s got no reason to lie.
Alderson on the other hand has very real motivation to feign Met interest in the fan favorite Reyes.
I don’t even fault Alderson for faking the funk. I have to imagine part of the very messy job of rescuing the Mets is covering as much as possible for the on going Ponzi repurcussions.
In fact it now seems painfully obvious, the Mets are “broke” (relatively speaking of course) and cannot possibly afford to keep Reyes so their GM was forced to CWA (Cover Wilponzi Ass) by pretending to be interested in Reyes knowing all along he was never coming back.
Meanwhile the Marlins are gonna kick piss out of the Mets this season both on and off the field.
They’re going to be MUCH better than us this season and will quickly be on their way to World Series Crown number 3 while we keep floundering at the bottom of the division faaaar from and Fall Classic appearance.
