Mets official: we have “no shot” to sign Jose Reyes
Joel Sherman of the New York Post spoke with someone in the Mets front office and that someone thinks the team has “no shot” to re-sign Jose Reyes:
“No shot” seems kind of extreme, but it doesn’t seem all that wrong.
There are a lot of teams who could use an elite shortstop and who are willing to take the risk on “this hamstring thing.” I really have a hard time on Reyes having to take the discount that Sherman suggests the Mets would need him to give them in order to sign him. And Alderson’s m.o. has never been to be top-heavy in terms of salary and star power. He’s probably far more content to use the money earmarked for Reyes for other things.
