You don’t see this sort of thing very often for a guy who departed after free agency. Especially a few short months after. But the Mets are doing it:

According to a team source, the Mets will acknowledge Reyes’ nine years in New York with a video tribute on April 24, before the shortstop’s Citi Field unveiling as a Miami Marlin. That game opens a three-game series.

I think it’s nice when a team acknowledges past players, no matter the circumstances of the departure. But I have this feeling someone with a column in New York is gonna think this is a problem.
