Jeffrey Loria Told Jose Reyes To "Get A Nice House In Miami" Four Days…

We knew that the Marlins had given Jose Reyes "verbal assurances" that they wouldn't trade him, but yesterday brought a new report about the exact content of those promises and when the Marlins were making them. In particular, walking pair of conspicuously expensive sunglasses Jeffrey Loria told Jose Reyes to buy a house … » 2/16/13 12:20pm 2/16/13 12:20pm

The Marlins Specifically Promised Not To Trade Jose Reyes And Mark…

Need another reason to hate the Marlins? Let's add this to the list (there's seriously a list): not only did the Miami Marlins and their awful ownership trade away half the team—they did so despite promising at least two stars, who signed with the Marlins this summer hoping to stay in Miami for some time, that they… » 11/17/12 7:15pm 11/17/12 7:15pm

Jose Reyes Home Run Drills Wrigley Field Usher In The Back

The Marlins announcers were oddly impressed that Reyes was able to hit one out to right even with the wind at Wrigley blowing in, but a reader named Justin happened to notice where the ball actually lands. The best view is at the end of the clip below, beginning right around the 41-second mark. Yep. A direct hit. » 7/19/12 11:15am 7/19/12 11:15am

What Losing Jose Reyes Really Means For Mets Fans

In eighth grade I wrote a poem about Jose Reyes, the Miami Marlins' new shortstop. The poem wasn't so good. I wrote it in Reyes's gregarious broken English, in which every third utterance is "you know" or "man." But I had to write something quickly for a class, and in April 2005, nothing captivated me quite like the Mets… » 12/05/11 4:00pm 12/05/11 4:00pm

Jose Reyes Seinfeld The Puppy Begs Jose Reyes The Human To Stay With…

Jerry Seinfeld is a Mets fan, for some masochistic reason. Being a Mets fan means always having to say they're sorry. But one silver lining is the very real chance of re-signing Jose Reyes, so that they can pay him $15 million when he's 36 years old, which is the soonest possible time the team will be good again. » 11/23/11 3:45pm 11/23/11 3:45pm

Jose Reyes Is A Selfish, Gutless, Stat-Padding Quitter (Just Like…

From the moment Jose Reyes dropped a first-inning bunt single and then checked out of the season's final game, leaving his average at .337 and all but assuring the Mets of the first batting title in franchise history, it was obvious that people who need something to yell about were going to yell about it. How dare… » 9/29/11 11:40am 9/29/11 11:40am

11-Year-Old Is The Best Broadcaster The Mets Have Ever Had

Young Jacob Resnick got to call Jose Reyes' first-pitch home run last night (and stick around for the eventual Mets meltdown). He won an essay contest and an audition, and we see why he won. He's genuinely excited by the game he's calling, a trait all-too-often absent in our current crop of commentators. (The… » 8/03/11 12:00pm 8/03/11 12:00pm
