Report: Jose Reyes to Marlins Done Deal

Both Dino Costa of Sirius/XM Radio and Business of Baseball’s Maury Brown  are reporting that Jose Reyes to the Marlins is complete. Terms still unknown, and each has a caveat (Costa says Hanley Ramirez needs to sign off on a move to third base, MLB Network Radio says it pending a physical).
I’ve made no secret here and in my other reporting how this seemed to be a near-certainty, given ownership’s financial situation. But my only reaction right now is anger that my daughter won’t get to grow up watching Jose Reyes play on a regular basis.
And if the deal is short, for more annual value, as has been rumored, the one remaining reason not to sign Reyes (beware the ides of long-term contracts) didn’t even apply here. Ridiculous.
The Marlins first arrive at Citi Field on Tuesday, April 24 for a three-game series. It is a Tuesday-Thursday, so good news for the Mets- they’ll sell plenty of tickets for some weeknight games. But without Reyes, they probably shouldn’t get used to that.
