It's A Business

Mets fans exploded yesterday when reports of Jose Reyes first being offered a contract by the Marlins and then *gasp!* considering the deal and visiting the Marlins came out.  I may have exploded too, I mean if I hadn't already realized that the Mets are not the only team that wants Jose Reyes and that Jose Reyes is not only interested in returning the the Mets.

Reyes is one of the best shortstops and overall players in the game right now.  The Mets are not the only team that can benefit from having him.  Other teams are going to try to sign him.  And when those other teams put out their offers, Reyes has every right to consider the offer.  He has no obligation to only think about the Mets and what they may or may not give him in a contract.

I want Jose Reyes to come back as much as any other Mets fan.  However, I also know the Mets are just one of thirty teams that can offer a contract to him.  He's going to sign wherever he wants to.  No matter what the crazy fans think, their craziness is not going have any impact on his decision.

Can we please just move on and realize we have no say in any of this?

Let's Go Mets!
