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.

Jerry Seinfeld recently named his dachshund puppy after Reyes, and yesterday brought him on TV to make a floppy-eared plea to the shortstop to stay. Jeffery Loria has countered with a Gatorade cooler full of fresh puppy blood, if it’ll get a deal done.
