As you no doubt have heard by now, Jose Reyes has agreed to a six-year, $106 million contract with the Miami Marlins, including an option for a seventh season.

Needless to say, this hurts for Mets fans, and is clearly the end of an era.  Reyes had been with the Mets since his 2003 debut and had been one of the most exciting, explosive players in franchise history. 

As any Mets fan could tell you, as Reyes went, the team went, making him an invaluable member of the organization for nine years, capping off his run in New York with the first ever batting title in Mets' history.

Obviously, it is going to be hard, if not impossible, to replace a player like Reyes.  Between his defense, his average, his speed and just his general energy, Reyes leaves a huge hole on the Mets roster now.

Hey, it's something, right? 

Here are five things that Mets fans can feel a bit better about after suffering this blow.
