Jose Reyes is back, and he wants Mets fans to know he’s healthy and ready for spring training. From MLB.com:
Reyes took a significant step (to returning to action) Monday, running five 90-foot sprints and subsequently declaring himself ready for Spring Training.
“That’s how I do it,” Reyes told SNY. “I’m ready to play baseball.”
Well that was easy. I guess the Mets are going to the World Series in 2010. In related news, Oliver Perez managed to throw five pitches without any of them going over the backstop, and also declared himself ready to go.
Kidding aside, it’s good to see someone at least trying to show a little optimism regarding the Metropolitans. I’m not even a Mets fan and I find the whole thing depressing.
Clearly, Reyes is a big key for the Mets, and who knows, maybe if they can stay healthy they’ll be competitive. Of course that will just give Omar Minaya job security, so I guess every silver lining has a cloud, or something.
