Sorry Tigers Fans, Mets Are Trying To Resign Reyes

If Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has his way, free-agent-to-be shortstop Jose Reyes won’t just finish this season in a Mets uniform, but will also start next season at Citi Field.

The New York Post reports Alderson is “leaning strongly toward authorizing a substantial offer after the season” to keep Reyes, and there is “almost no way” Reyes will be traded before the July 31 deadline.

Reyes has said he didn’t want to negotiate during the season.

Earlier this season, Mets owner Fred Wilpon told the New Yorker that Reyes “thinks he’s going to get Carl Crawford money” and “won’t get it.”

Carl Crawford money, it should be noted, is $142 million over seven years.

It will likely take at least $100 million to sign Reyes for the next five or six years, and the Post reports the Mets ownership would be willing to offer close to $20 million per season to keep Reyes.

Reyes has also said in the past he’d prefer to stay with the Mets.
