Report: Mets To Reopen Lines Of Communication With Jose Reyes

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson will “reopen the lines of communication” with free-agent Jose Reyes, according to ESPN New York. The Mets reportedly hope to meet with his representatives before the Winter Meetings next week in Dallas.

"I certainly would hope that we'll have conversations ... by the time we get to Dallas, or at Dallas," Alderson said. "I do expect to have them over the next handful of days."

The Mets last met with Reyes, their star shortstop of the past nine seasons, in early November right after the 28-year-old became a free agent. Reyes just finished a four-year, $23.25 million deal he signed with the Mets in 2007, which allowed the club to exercise a $9 million option to keep him for 2011. It was believed earlier this offseason that Reyes would attempt to secure a contract similar to the one which Carl Crawford was awarded last year, worth $142 million over seven years.

It appears, however, that he market is not that strong for Reyes. So far the only other major public suitor for his services have been the Miami Marlins, who are believed to have offered him a $90 million deal. Some have speculated that Reyes will sign for no less than $100 million.
