Jose Reyes could be back in action as early as Saturday

“Barring setbacks,” Jerry Manuel says. Given that Reyes’ only issue after getting the greenlight on his thyroid appears to have been getting back into game shape, the only real setback I can see is if he takes up smoking or enters a chicken wing eating contest or something.

Heck, this whole thyroid thing may have even been a blessing in disguise inasmuch his legs might have benefited from the extra time off.

    I am so looking forward to the year Jose gets to play a full year, free of injury. He’s the most exciting player my Mets have had in years.

    Knowing the Mets, Jose will probably trip on his shoelace coming out of the dugout on Saturday, and tear his ACL, and be out for the rest of the season.

    Why even waste the time to write such a ridiculous comment?
