The best spot for Reyes to land would be with the Boston Red Sox. This offseason the Red Six addressed their most glaring needs by trading for Adrian Gonzalez to play first base and by signing Carl Crawford to roam left field of Fenway Park.
One position that wasn't considered an absolute need was shortstop because Boston already had Marco Scutaro and/or Jed Lowrie to play the position.
This year though Scutaro hasn't hit at all and has been benched while Jed Lowrie has an above .300 average, but Lowrie isn't explosive at all, doesn't steal many bases, and doesn't drive in many runs.
Reyes provides all of these things for a team and the Red Sox have the prospects and the deep wallets needed to get a guy like Reyes.
The Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate, the Pawtucket Red Sox, has a ton of young and talented prospects on their roster. Pitching-wise, lefty Felix Doubront and righty Kyle Weiland are two names that the Mets would covet to fill in their much maligned starting rotation and bullpen.
Hitting-wise, the big name brought up in trade discussions is star shortstop prospect Jose Iglesias. He would be a necessity for the Mets to have in a trade in order to make up for the loss of a star shortstop like Jose Reyes.
