OK, so in case you missed it there was what can be described as a rehearsal of what to expect if or when Reyes signs with another team. It started with the following tweet from some satellite radio personality.
It was then followed with a flood of tweets scrambling to find if the rumor was true and angry tweets that the Mets allowed this to happen. A few hours later came a tweet from one of Reyes agents describing his afternoon and how he was having a “#verynormalsunday” . You can read into that as much or as little as you wish but just wanted to make note in case you was not aware of it.
Soon after came a tweet from MLB Network Radio denying earlier rumors that they had reported Reyes had indeed signed with the Marlins pending a physical.
Finally CBS Sports tweeted soon after that the reports of Reyes having already agreed to signing with the Marlins were “untrue”.
Now against what seems to be the overwhelming popular opinion I am of the belief the 2 sides can still work a deal out but for those that don’t agree allow me to recommend a suggestion Adam Rubin of ESPN New York made in a post.
