The Mets’ Asking Price For Jose Reyes

MONDAY, 9:12am: The Mets' internal discussions about trading Reyes were just "normal due diligence," reports Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, and he's more likely to stay with the team for 2011.

WEDNESDAY, 4:37pm: Jose Reyes is available, but the Mets want three or four players in exchange for their shortstop, according to Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle (on Twitter). Reyes, 27, earns $11MM in 2011 before becoming a free agent. He hit .282/.321/.428 with 30 steals and 50 extra base hits in 603 plate appearances last year.

There's no indication that Mets GM Sandy Alderson is actively shopping Reyes, but there would be a market for him. Earlier today, Schulman reported that the Giants are focusing on finding a shortstop. Along with the Cardinals and Padres, they have interest in free agent Miguel Tejada. Tejada, Juan Uribe, Cesar Izturis Jason Bartlett, J.J. Hardy, Marco Scutaro and others are potentially available, but in general the shortstops available via trade or free agency aren't overly appealing.

Thats two much, especially since he’ll go to Free Agency and get paid big time.

adropofvenom

That’s the point. They really don’t have any interest in moving him.

4 years 9 months ago

Personally I would dump Wright before Reyes.

Wright is still afraid of inside pitches after being beaned last year, and he’s completely worthless from the 7th inning on.

MetsEventually
4 years 9 months ago

I know what you mean, but Reyes overall play has gone down while Wright has had a slight decline only because of Citifield.

Emanny
4 years 9 months ago

Huh? I don’t get that. Reyes gets injured and his overall play has gone down, but Wright amongst the leaders in K’s, with average defense gets a slight decline because of Citi?

MetsEventually
4 years 9 months ago

Reyes’ speed clearly declined, which was his strong point. Sure Wright lost points on the BA, but his home run numbers jumped back up.

Emanny
4 years 9 months ago

He came off an injury, and still gave us 11 HR’s, 29 doubles, and 10 triples through 133 games. If healthy all season, he’d have his norm year. Wright SUCKED in clutch situations, so while the HR’s were brought up, so were the K’s.

MetsEventually
4 years 9 months ago

I really do see where you’re coming for but Wright is looked upon as more valuable. Sandy himself say that Bay (contract) Ike and Wright are currently untradeable.

bobbybaseball
4 years 9 months ago

Although in the case of Bay, he’s untradeable because of his contract.

Average defense? His defense is terrible. I believe it’s the worst among qualified third basemen.

Also had the 2nd worst K% of all 3B, and when you’re 2nd only to Mark Reynolds, that’s very bad…

His throwing was much better this season thanks to ike and aside from a few bumps late the season i think this could have been one of his better seasons.

If we’re talking about trading for David Wright, then how about the White Sox send John Danks, Carlos Quentin, Brent Morel, Mark Teahen, and cash considerations for David Wright and Fernando Martinez? John Danks can fill a spot in the Mets’ rotation, Carlos Quentin could play right field, allowing them to more comfortably trade Carlos Beltran, Brent Morel could play 3rd base for the Mets, Mark Teahen could play 2nd base until Flores, Ravens, and Tejada are ready, and the cash the White Sox send could help pay off John Danks’ and Carlos Quentin’s arbitration raise, as well as Mark Teahen’s hefty contract. This helps both teams out and fills out many holes. The White Sox would no longer have a hole at 3rd base, we could plug F-Mart into right field, and it would free up some money to sign Adam Dunn or another 1st baseman. Wow. I know that sounded like nonsense, but what do you guys think? Who would win the trade?

4 years 9 months ago

Wow. Do you do drugs on a regular basis? Quentin and Teahen are both useless. So you’re proposing Danks (a decent SP)and Morel for Wright and one of the Mets’ best prospects, albeit one whose luster has faded. If I’m Sandy Alderson, I find it very eassy to say no to this. The Mets fanbase would go apes**t if this trade was made. And that’s coming from a Yankees fan. You can’t trade David Wright for a couple of stop-gaps who are due bigger paydays and one pretty good starter.

diehardmets
4 years 9 months ago

No! Do NOT trade him! His value is extremely low. Selling now would be foolish. Plus, he is the key to the Met’s offense.

Ferrariman
4 years 9 months ago

his value might be low, but it won’t get much higher. He is a free agent after this season. I suppose you could wait till trade deadline, but that probably won’t increase the return either because then a team would only have him for half a season so they won’t give as much for him. Besides, mets aren’t really competing next season anyways…

4 years 9 months ago

Agreed — I think trading Jose Reyes would be something to think about. He’s an offensive catalyst, but he’s been out with injuries. His trade value is worth investigating, especially if the Mets can get a couple top-notch prospects (starting pitching!) in return.

adropofvenom
4 years 9 months ago

The Mets aren’t some small market team who can’t keep their own players……they don’t have to move Reyes. And quite frankly, they should keep Reyes. I don’t blame Sandy for doing his due diligence, but at the end of the day, Reyes has more value to the Mets then he would in a trade, so he won’t be dealt (Unless some team goes crazy, that is).

Ferrariman
4 years 9 months ago

its not crazy to trade reyes and then re-sign him as a free agent. their not going anywhere in 2011 but maybe going forward Reyes can still be a met.

adropofvenom

Sounds decent on paper, but you’re also risking burning a bridge with one of your homegrown franchise players……very risky.

3 or 4 players for one year of a highly-paid but no-longer-elite-performing SS with a history of injuries? Unless those players are low-to-mid-level prospects, no thanks.

That’s what it would be. 1 very good/good prospect + 2-3 decent to low level prospects.

No one will give up 3-4 good prospects.

penpaper
4 years 9 months ago

Exactly. The Mets are looking for quantity instead of quality.

4 years 9 months ago

Quantity, yes. But at least one of those prospects would have to be quality. One very good, one good an two low-level sounds like what the Mets would require. Bob doesn’t understand that because he’s a Red Sox fan. The Mets aren’t going to trade Jose Reyes for four guys in A ball, unless one of them is Julio Teheran or the Trout kid from the Angels

No thank you.. Too pricey.. way too much talent to give up.

GreenCustom24
4 years 9 months ago

Same here. If he’s healthy you extend him. Also, sign Crawford to play Left/Center. The speed of Reyes, Crawford and Ellsbury in the same lineup? Easily 200 steals per year combined. Give the opposing teams FITS! Not to mention the other speed they’ve got with Pedroia, Youkilis, Reddick, etc all able to swipe bags. That would be epic. Lots of speed, power and Plus defense.

4 years 9 months ago

Yeah, I’ve heard Youkilis is quite the speedster.

4 years 9 months ago

Sounds nice, in an espn fantasy league. Are you ready to bat Youk Cleanup and Pedroia 5th?? Lots of “epic” power??? Are you out of your mind? Think about what that lineup would look like– you got four 1-2 batters there and your Cleanup guy is about to leave town… and your 3-hole just DID leave town!

I would do it in a second, on my FANTASY team. But over there in the REAL world, that’s not how guys like Theo or Tito put together a REAL team… with a REAL $120mm roster.

gornie
4 years 9 months ago

let’s take the idea and think it through for kicks…who says your speedsters have to bat at the top of the order? or even that sluggers have to bat 4th and 5th? i’d pay good money to see a lineup of 9 ichiros.now not all these guys are ichiro but i think the idea could work. i love the idea of the “second leadoff” hitter in the a.l. where you can bat a speedster 9th and get all the benefits of having him on base to distract pitchers while run producers come to the plate. ellsbury is not yet proven as a bona fide leadoff man who can get on base 40% of the time, but as a 9 hitter he is a huge weapon. i suppose you can say the same about reyes but i give reyes the leadoff slot over the others because he has the best chance to be standing on third base with fewer than two outs in the opening inning. then i’d go crawford 2nd and pedroia 3rd followed by youkilis. reminds me of 85 cardinals in world series, with vince coleman/ozzie smith leading off and the other batting ninth; willie mcgee 2nd and tommy herr 3rd, protected by jack clark to put the fear of god into opposing pitchers if any of those speedsters were on base. a really exciting brand of baseball, with drama on practically every pitch of every inning.and reyes is a bit fragile to say the least, so no harm sliding ellsbury back to leadoff if/when reyes blows out a hamstring.

The Red Sox and a $120 million roster? Try $170 million and you’re at least in the ballpark.
Oh, and don’t forget, you can’t spell PEDroia without P-E-D. The power will be there (wink, wink)
As for acquiring Reyes, figure Ellsbury woul have to be part of the deal. Maybe Bard, too. Reyes is a game-changer. There would be a steep cost to acquire him.

jondogg2010

I wouldn’t even do a top 100!!

Ferrariman
4 years 9 months ago

top 100, i most certainly would do. He can bring back 1, more likely 2 draft picks after he leaves anyways. Mets fans, would this get it done for ya’ll. Jason Motte, Dan Descalso, Jon Jay, and a minor league lottery ticket with good upside like Matt Adams.

jondogg2010
4 years 9 months ago

Ok maybe one, only and I mean only because of the Type A FA status. I think the Mets just need to blow the team up and do a complete salary dump, him, Bay, Beltran, and Johan, and start a new team around Ike Davis and David Wright. Did I mention I’m a die hard Red Sox fan.

Sniderlover
4 years 9 months ago

You realize it says just “three or four players”… it doesn’t say they all have to be top 100 prospects which they won’t get.

I think they can get a 50-100 type prospect + 2 mid-to-low level prospects… depending on the year he is having.

Dermick

I really dont see the Cardinals giving Motte and Jay away. They dont have a lot of good arms in the pin, and they need Jays left hand bat in the lineup

Ferrariman
4 years 9 months ago

motte is expendable. our right handed relief corp can be McClellan,Boggs,Salas,Franklin with Sanchez, Reifer, and Mulligan waiting in the minors and can all make appeareances this coming season. The left handed group is a bit thin, but Miller is solid, McClellan actually has better numbers verse lefties, and will probably have to get a free agent like Choate.

4 years 9 months ago

I love Choate but not as a pitcher. Great guy, but, speaking as a Yankees fan, I say tread lightly.

chucktb

An everyday 4 win or so shortstop is worth more than a setup man and a 4th OF.

ZeroZeroZero

New Mets same as the old Mets!!
Potential doesnt count for much once the guy has 8 seasons under his belt. The time to move him was after 07 or 08, now he has very little trade value. Omar could have stocked the farm with him but Omar wasnt that bright.

chicowalker
4 years 9 months ago

So the time to move him was when they were serious contenders? That makes a ton of sense. Most teams that have a good shot at winning their division trade away stars to stock the minors . . . don’t they? Reyes’s value might have been at its peak at that point, but he also still had value to the team. The Mets won’t compete for the next two seasons minimum, so even if his value is low on the market, he’s worth less to the team. That being said, they don’t have to move him. If Alderson sets a high price and no one meets it, so be it.

ZeroZeroZero
4 years 9 months ago

The Mets werent serious contenders after 08. They had basically no pitching at all and if memory serves me right they finished 4th and under .500. Its wasnt even a year that fell well below predictions. They looked bad going in and ended up being a bad team. There was a lot of media calling for the trade of Reyes or Wright and Omar insisted he could build a team around them and his idea of building a team was getting Oliver Perez and Gary Sheffield. Had Reyes been moved at that point, the Mets might be a contender now.

Ferrariman
4 years 9 months ago

“his idea of of building a team was getting Oliver Perez and Gary Sheffield”

don’t forget Luis Castillo!

4 years 9 months ago

“if memory serves me right they finished 4th and under .500. Its wasnt even a year that fell well below predictions. They looked bad going in and ended up being a bad team.”
if you’re talking about ’09 then it absolutely was a year that fell below expectations, many columnists predicted the mets to either win the division or wild card. what happened was that there were about 400 injuries to the team and no team has the depth to cover that. so going in to the ’09 season the mets absolutely did have a shot at the playoffs.
you might want to get your facts straight before bashing omar for not trading reyes, it’s not like he’s even a must trade candidate or even a bad contract now.
as for omar, you’re right. we’re glad he’s gone and will wait patiently for Alderson to turn the franchise around.

ZeroZeroZero
4 years 9 months ago

It was an injury year but it wasnt a year where everybody thought they were going to win it all. After Santana there was basically no rotation at all. Livan Hernandez and Time Redding started like 20 games each. Nobody was predicting the 2009 Mets to be really competitive.

chicowalker
4 years 9 months ago

Not everyone . . . but some fringe publications, like Sports Illustrated did think they could win it all. In fact, SI picked the Mets to win it all. In fact, SI had a poll of 13 “experts” and 9 of them picked the Mets to win the East. They certainly weren’t in rebuilding mode. It’s easy to forget what the expectations were. Don’t forget that Perez, Pelfrey and Maine had ~ 35 wins in 08. The rotation was supposed to be Santana, Pelfrey (who had a mid 3’s ERA in 08), Perez on his brand new contract, Maine who still showed promise, and then a fifth starter between Redding, Livan and Freddy Garcia (who they invited to Spring Training). The front four of the rotation were considered a strength going into the season. They really were expected to go far.

chicowalker
4 years 9 months ago

I don’t mean to harp on this, but you really couldn’t be more wrong. It’s not like it was one or two random guys that said the Mets could win in 09. It was most reporters, analysts, and publications.

MetsEventually
4 years 9 months ago

Uh, that’s wrong. Did you expect the team to go 72-90 in 2009? or lose half their ball club to injury?

myname_989
4 years 9 months ago

Even though it might equate to the most arrogant middle infield in baseball, I could see the Reds and Mets matching up on a Reyes deal. If they center a package around Yonder Alonso and include a couple of young arms, they might be able to get something done. Granted, not sure where that leaves Ike Davis.

The Reds just strike me as a good fit for him for some reason. I suppose the Giants, Cardinals, and the Padres could get involved, but out of those three, only the Giants really seems to make sense, and do they have the minor league talent to make a deal, assuming that Brandon Belt and Zach Wheeler are untouchable?

WrigleyTerror37
4 years 9 months ago

I like the reds idea. But i cant see reys in a giants uniform… Just throwing this out there but How about a 3 way trade the cubs get Ike Davis, The Reds get Reyes, and the Mets get Yonder Alonso and prospects from both teams. any thoughts???

myname_989
4 years 9 months ago

The Cubs aren’t giving anything up… Lol. You have the Mets giving up Ike Davis and Jose Reyes and the Reds giving up Yonder Alonso. Alderson wouldn’t be off to a great start if he did this. Lol

WrigleyTerror37
4 years 9 months ago

True true lol then what would you see the cubs giving up??? I only mentioned them bc they need a 1b man and if the Mets got Alonso then davis would be avaible. The cubs do have alot of young Bullpen type guys that could be avalible unless the mets want Fukudome.

myname_989
4 years 9 months ago

I don’t see the Cubs as a fit just because the Mets don’t have to move Ike Davis. That’s why I was kind of iffy about suggesting Yonder Alonso, because someone (either he or Ike) would have to move positions. I think Davis is athletic enough to play the outfield, but even then… is that what the Mets would really want? I’m sure they could ask for a talented middle infielder or starter too, but I thought that they’d ask for Alonso if the Reds showed interest in Reyes. Can’t see the Cubs getting involved though.

WrigleyTerror37
4 years 9 months ago

You got me there. I was just trying to fill the cubs problems in on your trade idea. But i do like your Reds Mets trade.

Alonso for Reyes and Davis might be about right, except for the fact that the Reds would have no need for Ike Davis. But that value is probably pretty close to even.

With the exception of 2009, Reyes has posted at least 600 PA’s since 2005. My point? While it might seem like he’s always injured, he does get his PA’s in–and they are quality PA’s at that.

harmony55
4 years 9 months ago

Let’s examine a trade of Jose Reyes for San Francisco lefthander Jonathan Sanchez.

The trade would be two arbitration years of the 28-year-old Sanchez, who was valued at 2.6 WAR last season, working off his 2010 salary of $2.1 million, for one $11 million year of Jose Reyes, who turns 28 next June after posting a WAR of 2.8 in 2010.

Given the years of control and the salaries, the Mets probably get the better end of that deal. Regardless, I don’t see the trade happening.

Reaper87
4 years 9 months ago

The Mets do get the better end. An extra year of team control, cheaper too. Maybe going into 2012 if Sanchez has another strong year he’ll make about 9-10 mil. Sabean would never do that for just one year of control on one player.

Ferrariman

his career ERA away from home is still just under 4(thats including his good/flukish 2008). the salary still doesn’t change. He is a overpriced #4/5 starter with injury problems no matter what league he plays in with little-to-no trade value.

That should raise his trade value to becoming a chip in a potential Reyes deal–it’s only incentive for a team taking a risk to take him.

“This is maybe the weakest SS Free Agent class in a looooong time.”So why should they shop him then? Trade him to have a hole at SS? No thanks.

Ruben Tejada at short, you saw what he can do on the field. But lets not discuss the bat…

Not only is it a weak SS Free Agent class, it’s also a weak SS trading class too. Very few teams are satisfied with their SS-I’d say the Rockies, Jays, Cubs, White Sox, Rays, and Marlins are completely satisfied with their current starters or their minor league starting options. You could add the D’Backs as being satisfied, but concerned with the cost of Drew, and the Mets also as satisfied, but even more concerned about the cost of Reyes going forward.

My point is if you put Reyes on the market, you could potentially have 20+ clubs checking in. One of them is going to make you an offer you can’t refuse.

Ferrariman—Didn’t the Cards just lock Westbrook up for 8.5 mil to be a 4th or 5th starter?
