Poll Results

After conducting a poll about weather or not you would trade our star SS Jose Reyes for Twins SP Johan Santana... A staggering 87% said NO. I'd have to agree with the majority on that one. Jose Reyes is an up and coming superstar and people need to look past his late season struggles last year. Reyes has many advantages over Johan Santana in my eyes..

  1. Jose Reyes is 24.. Johan Santana is 29.
  2. Jose Reyes plays every day.. Santana plays every five days.
  3. Jose Reyes costs $25 million over 4 years.. Johan Santana will cost $140-$150 million for 6-7 years.
  4. Lastly, we just can't trade away 1/2 of the heart and soul of our team.. the Mets should NEVER even consider splitting up David Wright and Jose Reyes.
We, the fans, know that we cannot trade Jose Reyes and I think Omar has made that very clear to the Minnesota Twins.. I still say that we wait it out and hope that the Twins hang on to Santana for the whole season, then we can pursue him via free-agency.

Once Reyes' contract is up, he'll be getting a much larger salary.

But, I wouldn't trade him either.

Good post. Link added!

Reyes will be a Met for his career.. even if he will get a ridiculous contract in the next few years.
