After watching last nights game, there is no doubt in my mind, or anyone else’s for that matter, that Jose Reyes is not only on the verge of having an MVP season but also obtaining gigantic contract from either the Mets or another team.
He absolutely deserves it.
But like the the Peter Parkers Uncle said to Spider Man ” With great power comes great responsibility”
I’ll change the quote to apply to Jose. “with a great contract comes great expectations.”
My question to him and to all the Readers is: Can Jose Reyes shoulder the responsibility of performing for the contract he is about to receive?
Can he deal with the boos and hisses from a crowd who didn’t see him grow up and only expects the raw speed and power from the short stop? Can he deal with a fan base that will expect him to carry the team more than be another part of it?
I’m not trying to deter Reyes from signing with another team. I’m not using fear of the unknown as a motivator to make him stay in Queens.
I just see this young blooming super star about to sign a contract with a team that expects what we are seeing this year to be every year.
Because you as well as I know that it’s not going to be like this every year.
I wonder if he thinks so too.
