Mets Hot Corner

Do We Need To Spend A Ton Of Money On Reyes?

There is no more Einhorn. No more $200 million dollars. A bunch of family and friends will be buying a stake in the team. And, unfortunately, there may be no more Jose Reyes.

I spoke to a die hard Dodgers fan a couple of weeks ago, and even thought that whole mess over there is pretty much just based off of greed, even he knew what a laughing stock the Mets were. A New York baseball team that can’t win, what is this world coming to??!!

Bah! Who knows?! Well, I guess we do, but where the team will go from here? Will there be a Jose Reyes next year? With is injuries this year, I think there may be. I don’t see any team giving him close to Carl Crawford money, but there is always a chance a team may come out fo the woodwork and make that big splash. It happened to Jayson Werth, right?

What about our rotation? The Mets need pitching. Is it really worth spending a ton of money on Reyes when we all know the best offense ia a better defense? I know we have to wait a year or two, but look at the Phillies? How many games did they win, strictly based on their pitching? They are only ranked #16 in the league, but they have a sick record! Why? Can you take a guess?

I love Jose Reyes, I really do, but at the end of the day, he will not be responsible for a World Series win. I’m telling you, there is no way. I hope I eat my words, but I guarantee I won’t. The time is now to save as much money as possible, bring up the kids to see what they’re made of and spend money wisely.

Those are just my two cents. If we sign Reyes, I won’t cry about it, it will be awesome! But expect to wait longer for a Series win.

    I agree with you, I think it is time to cut our ties with Jose. I love him as a player but sinking the amount of money into him would not be a wise business move. Listening to the FAN this morning they brought up a valid point. They asked if Jose Reyes was a football player and Bill Belichick, the best front office man in football, would think about resigning him. He wouldn’t go near him with a 10 foot pole. Spend the limited money we have on more pieces that help overall. We are playing for 2013 when the young pitching should be ready to come up and make some contributions.

      Great point on Belichik – We ALL love Jose, but it really is time to let him go, though it pains me to say it. He is not the whole team and I know if we get the pitching, we will win. No doubt in my mind! Thanks for reading!!
