Will You Boo or Cheer Jose Reyes?

An article by posted on January 22, 2012

The Daily News was at the New York BBWAA dinner last night and posted the following about Jose Reyes who was the winner of the “Good Guy Award”.

He is no longer a Met, but Jose Reyes was still a Mets fan favorite at the Baseball Writers of America New York chapter awards dinner Saturday night.

Making his first public appearance since he bolted for the Marlins as a free agent, Reyes was cheered by fans in the audience when he was introduced.

Reyes was honored with the Good Guy Award and lived up to the honor by making it a point to thank Mets fans.

“I know I am not going to be here no more, but I appreciate all the support you gave me all these years,” Reyes said.

The Marlins come into town on April 24 and Jose Reyes will take the field for the first time in his career as part of the opposing team. What kind of reception do you think he will get from the Shea Citi Field faithful?

By the way, did Jose Reyes always wear glasses or is this something new?
