Didn't realize I was appearing to be "fired up." Truthfully, I don't even really care.
haha i didnt quite get the 'all fired up' vibe outta u either.. in any event, its really not that serious, i guess well just agree to disagree... and honestly, after last seasons debacle with the Mets and their recent injury bug, i need some hopeless optimism this yr! it might be the highlight of my season, just let me be positive here guys!!!

I'll have to admit, after watching Reyes run in ST over the last few days, I feel a lot better about his prospects. It's his legs that worry me the most. Well, I guess it's that and the fact that the Mets are notorious for mishandling their player's injuries.
So let's agree to agree. Reyes could well be the steal of the draft, and we could be listing him in the top-10 again this time next year. I'd like to see that, because I like players like him. It's just that I can't help but be just a little bit cynical... maybe because he sat on my DL for the entire year last year!

With that said, I just got him for $11 and change in an auction, so I have no complaints there
"Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that the Mets' plan is for Jose Reyes to miss Opening Day, but possibly join the club for the fifth game of the season against the Nationals. If the Mets backdate Reyes, he would be eligible to return from the disabled list on March 10, the fifth game of the season. It's disappointing that he won't be on the lineup card for Opening Day, but Reyes has yet to play without restrictions in minor league games. It's not worth risking his long-term health if he's not in proper game-shape. Alex Cora will start in the meantime. Mar. 31 - 5:30 pm et Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter "
I've seen him go around 70 as of late, give or take a round. He seems worth it even with the risk that comes along.
