Rumor Mill: Mets will not trade Jose Reyes at the deadline


The New York Mets now are certain they will not trade shortstop Jose Reyes before the July 31 deadline, league sources told ESPN The Magazine's Buster Olney on Wednesday.

Buster Olney says the Mets have decided not to deal Jose Reyes before the trade deadline.

The Mets likely would have quite a few suitors for the All-Star, but he has been playing so well in recent weeks that the team has decided to hold onto him despite his pending free agency, sources said.

Reyes leads the league in batting average (.355), hits (126) and triples (15). He also has 30 steals, despite missing 12 games with a hamstring injury.

He returned Tuesday from the disabled list and went 2-for-5 with a run scored in the Mets' 4-2 win over the Cardinals.

The 28-year-old has spent his entire nine-year career with the Mets.

Cafardo: Time and go get this Met - Jose Reyes


Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe gives us his take on what the Boston Red Sox need is to succeed, shortstop Jose Reyes....

Cafardo is quoted as saying,
You don't go out and obtain Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford to finish second to the Yankees. You get those guys because you've committed to winning it all. And to not finish things off would be foolish.

So, as the trade deadline approaches in two weeks, the Red Sox have to identify what they need to accomplish their goal.

From this perspective, they should load up the truck of prospects and send them to the Mets for shortstop Jose Reyes. "I know that everyone seems to think the Red Sox are going to bring in Carlos Beltran, or that they need a pitcher, but today proved to me that their biggest need is to get Reyes and solidify that shortstop position," said an American League scout [Saturday].

Hey Listen, The Mets could use some relief from payroll next season and send Reyes over to Red Sox Nation for some prospects, if they are worth it. But would Alderson do it?


I don't think Sandy Alderson is ready to throw in the towel on the Reyes front just yet. Plus he is one of the few players that he would get draft pick compensation for if not signed (Key is rebuilding). 

He is also highly regarded from a Fan Stand point and the Mets are not ready to lose more fans.  On the other hand, Carlos Beltran in my opinion is a goner and as soon as the Mets see the players they want back in return, that will be a settled issue.
