It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

What's Shaking? Not Jose Reyes

Finally, some real news.

From ESPN:

"No more handshakes. People kept saying we got teams fired up when we did those handshakes, so now I want to focus more on baseball," Reyes said, according to Newsday.


"Nobody said anything to me, but it's because of what happened last year," Reyes said, according to Newsday. "That's why I'm taking this year more seriously. In 2006, everybody loved [the handshakes], but now it's different. I'm going to enjoy the game, but I'm not going to do the handshakes with the guys. I don't want people to talk about that. I just want to play baseball. I want to take care of business on the field."

I know there are different opinions, but this just made me cringe last year. This gives me a sense of relief not unlike the trade of Roberto Alomar. Now Jose can save his energy for running out base hits. And Carlos Delgado can get back to his notebook.

Jose Reyes...he's serious now.

    Hey IMFM - I remember you... what are all these posts about making cash? I thought you were a non-profit organization. A very, very, non profit?

    Pouty Jose is def. a draw. I've become swamped at work so posting during my "spare time" has become harder. But I plan on being totally delinquent come April. Maybe I'll actually try to contribute tripe to your site again.

    So now Clemens attorney says that Clemens might have been at Canseco's party, now that photos have materialized. Keep in mind that his attorney's name is Rusty Hard On. That is practically an admission of guilt right there.

    and it looks like the Needler's lawyers are making a move to get that Boner off of Roidger's team.
