Reyes might be the best non-rookie contract in baseball right now. I love Jose.
The problem was that the Mets built a park essentially for Reyes, then they let him go because they didn't think his legs would hold up. He constantly had hamstring problems back then and while it hurt letting him go, I agreed with the decision. You don't give big time contracts to those players reliant on their legs, see Ellsbury.
That's a fair point and I agree on all aspects. Ellbury contract was a fireable offense.
