Jose Reyes: working through his NetFlix queue

Mar 23, 2010, 10:28 AM EDT

UPDATE: Forget it. Reyes has now been cleared to resume playing ball and is heading back to the Mets camp today. Great news for the Mets and their fans. Not so good news for Netflix.

The Post’s Kevin Kernan caught up with Jose Reyes, who is sitting at home waiting for his thyroid levels to return to normal.  What’s he doing?

“I’m still lying down on my couch every day. I’ve seen like 20
movies so far.”

Which is his favorite?

“I enjoy every one,”
he said. “I got nothing to do, that’s what I got to do.”

This is profoundly depressing. If he had a leg injury or something he could at least do upper body work. If he had a bum elbow he could at least ride an exercise bike.  The notion of a professional athlete sidelined by something that prevents him from being able to be with the team or do anything productive from a baseball perspective is really, really sad.

    It’s the Mets, what else do you expect?

    Knowing the Mets’ medical staff, Reyes probably has gout instead of a thyroid problem.

    He can’t tell you what he watched because all the movies are in Spanish and no one will know what they are. He’s been here for 5+ years and it’s still impossible to understand him.

    I guess it’s ok to be offensive if we are going to be offensive to everybody, huh?

    Jack, you are either deaf or English is not your native language either. I can understand Reyes just fine.
    Good to see Reyes come back so soon.
