I couldn’t help but laugh at the big fuss over Jose Reyes grabbing a bite to eat in Philly last night.
Funnier still was waking up to blaring headlines connecting Reyes to some clandestine negotiations with the Phillies who were covertly wining and dining the former Mets shortstop.
Phillies officials responded like this:
“That is such bull.” . . . “Absolutely nuts.” . . . “I haven’t heard that guy’s name mentioned in our offices in two months.” . . . “People can make what they want of it, but this is not a guy for us.”
Now that’s priceless…
The whole episode did have some added benefit for me as I was finally able to figure out how the hell the Mets news cycle currently works.
