MLB Trade Rumors: New York Mets Reconsidering Letting Jose Reyes Walk?
Before the season, it seemed likely that the Mets would deal Jose Reyes at the Trade Deadline.
They weren't planning to lock him up when his contract expired at the end of the season, and with New York looking ill-fit to contend it seemed to make more sense to trade him for prospects than to let him walk as a free agent and get only draft picks.
Then, when owner Fred Wilpon said in a New Yorker interview that Reyes has "had everything wrong with him," baseball people inferred that the Mets were desperate to get rid of him.
But FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal hears otherwise. His source said the Mets are reconsidering their previous hesitance to give Reyes a blockbuster deal after the season, and therefore would trade their shortstop only if another team "bowled them over" with a great offer.
Of course, it's possible that this is a facade and the front office is simply trying to regain the leverage they lost after Wilpon's interview.
