Who Will You Blame If The Mets Fail To Sign Reyes?

This morning, Andy Martino of the Daily News broke the stunning news that the Jose Reyes negotiations won’t be quick. A real shocker, huh? This startling revelation made big headlines across the Mets blogosphere and quickly spread like wildfire. Umm, yeah, okay, whatever… While I was pondering the ridiculousness of this morning’s Mets news cycle, […]
