As many Metropolitan fans would know, Jose Reyes, the shortstop for the New York Mets, was a pivotal piece of the team’s overall structure. Before the hamstring injury in 2009, the lightning speedy Reyes was known as the Mets table setter and “run” machine. Now, after the end of the 2009-2010 season, Jose Reyes was dedicated to coming back healthy and strong in hopes to play again for the N.Y Mets.
During the offseason, Reyes contributed heavily to hard work and physical fitness training. Many reporters, TV analysts, and even fans were almost sure that he would start the 2010-2011 season. The skilled shortstop was batting great, fielding wonderfully, and running again like #7 was often used to. It was a great feeling for the Mets franchise and all was very elated to see Reyes on the field.
The 2010 Spring training when Jose Reyes was shutdown from all baseball activities due to a thyroid problem. The Mets organization was again in despair and hoping that somehow, someway, Jose Reyes would be fine and be able to start the opening game for the New York Mets.
With everyone knowing the kind of skill set that Jose Reyes brings to the team, the METS players were working hard everyday, but also having Reyes on their minds. The organization remained positive throughout this time, but was searching for alternatives in case Reyes does not come back. The fans were devastated of the news, but being die hard MET fans, still kept a positive outlook on the upcoming season. There was a black cloud over the METS and everyone that supported the franchise. Will the team ever be the same again? Will #7 ever carry the torch for the METS organization? Everyone held their breathe waiting impatiently for the verdict.
On 3/24/2010, the heaven’s gates had started to open. The angels had come and the trumpets had sounded. Jose Reyes has once again come back to the New York Mets! Doctors and physicians have studied Jose Reyes and the thyroid levels have returned back to normal. The happy shortstop was again performing drills, exercises, and most of all running. Although #7 was cautioned and only had light training, the organization and the New York Met fans were excited that their beloved shortstop had once again returned.
So the question now is will Jose Reyes start the beginning of the 2010-2011 MLB season? Very good question. The answer still remains. Even though Jose Reyes is now training in Port St. Lucie (Mets spring training camp), there are still doubts that #7 will begin the season. Obviously, the organization is taking the recovery very seriously and taking it day by day. The Mets intend to not overwork Reyes and provide training based on how Reyes is handling the drills, exercises, etc. It is definitely something that has all of New York buzzing and thinking about. I guess for now… we all just have to wait and see.
BLOG SURFACE firmly believes that Jose Reyes, unfortunately, will not start the beginning of the 2010-2011 season. Although we hope to be wrong, we feel Jose Reyes is a player that the Mets organization is taking very seriously and will not make any quick decisions of playing time until the All-Star shortstop is proven to be 100% for sure. I think all Met fans would agree to carefully review Jose Reyes before letting #7 play the field. We anticipate Reyes to finally come back in the month of May, one month after the start of the season. The worst thing to happen is for the shortstop to get hurt once again and be out throughout the rest of the games. It is important that when Reyes does finally return, it will definitely be for good.
