It's pretty apparent Jose would love to stay with the Mets. As a Marlin, Blue Jay and Rockie, Jose kept a home on Long Island. Even while playing for the other guys, he'd often post on social media about his love for not only NY, but his first team.
The Mets are clearly on Jose's mind, and it's not a long-shot that the team will bring him back. It's still not clear what they'll do a 2B, but Carig says Jose's the fallback option, and he obviously is holding out hope for a return.
Been saying this for awhile. A reunion with Reyes is most certainly in play. Alderson said as much today. https://t.co/E428PxrXch— Marc Carig (@MarcCarig) November 13, 2017
I got a text last night from my girl MJ with a screenshot of Jose's snap wearing last years Run Run Reyes ugly sweatshirt. If you wear a 3XL or 4XL, you're still in luck. The 7 Line does have a Snapchat account, but I never look at it. I often let friends run it at our outings, and to be honest I'm pretty clueless on how to even use it. I should probably get on that, or just hire some 16 year old intern to come teach me.
Since I didn't see anything on IG or Twitter, I text Jose about it. He ran in to an aspiring ballplayer name Kyle McLaughlin (@kglock27) at a local gym and sent me the link to his photo.
I wouldn't have the moxie to pull off wearing a shirt with my own name or face on it. More power to anyone who can.
Come out to our tailgate party on June 18th before the Mets take on the Marlins at Citi Field. The game starts at 4:10pm which is perfect for a pre-game meet up. Swing by to see some friends, maybe meet some new ones, and responsibly wash down a couple cold ones.
