In the Star Ledger, Jeff Bradley says Jose Reyes’ first season in something other than a Mets uniform has turned out very much like the last three he spent playing in Flushing. That is, playing stylishly, and putting up some pretty nice numbers, for a team that’s going nowhere.

Spending money neither buys happiness nor guarantees success in sports. A look in the Miami dugout accompanied by a glance at Jason Bay in left field for the Mets would tell that to anyone, Larry Brooks explains in the New York Post.
