Jose Reyes on contract talks with Mets: “Everything is quiet”

Last month there were reports that the Mets wanted a quick decision from Jose Reyes, but yesterday the free agent shortstop told Nick Klopsis of New York Newsday that the two sides haven’t even started contract talks.

“They’ll probably start up within the next few days, but right now everything is quiet,” Reyes said, reiterating that he’d like to re-sign with the Mets while adding that “this is a business and we just need to wait and see what happens.”

From now until five days after the World Series the Mets are the only team able to negotiate with Reyes, but the fact that they haven’t reached out to him yet is ultimately pretty meaningless. There’s almost zero chance of Reyes re-signing before hitting the open market, so while getting the ball rolling on negotiations may have some value it won’t keep the Mets from having to out-bid a bunch of other teams for him once the offers start flying.

    I heard Reyes was on his way to a meeting to discuss a contract but pulled a hammy.
