Jose Reyes Free-Agent Rumors: 8 Teams in the Running To Land Him This Winter

The New York Mets shortstop Jose Reyes hits free agency this offseason, and will change the MLB looking for a new team.

As a Mets fan, the idea of losing the coveted free agent breaks my heart, but the smartest baseball fans around recognize that it might make more sense for the team in financial trouble to build for a future without Reyes. After being sacked by a Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme, Mets ownership feels that they are “bleeding cash” and may not be able to sign their superstar shortstop.

My prediction is that the public relations committee and baseball minds in New York remind management that Reyes is one of the best players in the world, and letting him go without getting anything in return would be an absolute media disaster for the team. The sporting world has a careful eye on the player, and is beyond curious as to where he will end up in the offseason.

While we can all hope that Reyes will return to Citi Field and play for the New York Mets next season, it’s important for fans like myself to speculate as to where their shortstop could end up next year.

Remember, these are not predictions, but options. The Mets could still be the leading candidate to sign Reyes. Still, this is something that the fans must consider.
