David Wright has issued the following statement regarding Jose Reyes:
“Jose’s a great friend and a great player. While I will miss him as a friend and teammate, I’m glad he was able to get the contract that he earned and deserved. I truly wish him all the best in Miami. I have trust and faith that we will have a much improved and exciting team and 2012 will be a great year for the Mets.”
Nice to hear the Mets elder statesman weigh in. Wright is now the longest tenured player on the team.
