His initial reaction (if you believe the Post, lol) was positive. I am not sure if there were promises made but he was definitely under the impression he would be the SS for 3 years. But this arrangement was made under the assumption that he was a gold glove caliber SS which he has not lived up to. He's still getting used to playing on a natural surface but he has looked bad on some of these errors.
I really like Kaz but SS is your most important position and Reyes IS the better SS IMO. This would be the right move for the Mets.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
