Mets blog: Reyes Available, Orioles Interested
According to sources, the Mets have put word out to teams that SS Jose Reyes is available and will look to trade Reyes during the Winter Meetings.
The Red Sox, Orioles, and Rays have called to get a feel for the situation and trade talks will likely heat up during the winter, the sources believe.

Well, SG should be happy to know that the Orioles called.

I'm okay with this. Improves the team 10x.
He's a top tier SS that would turn our 9-hole hitter into a #1 or #2, and would allow our team to not be dead last in baserunning.
In before clubhouse cancer / injury history.

Last time I checked they had a bunch of shortstops on their MLB roster and were cutting payroll, how does adding an 11 million dollar SS work for them?

Good news, if true. What it takes to get him is another story.

Sources tell Matt Pignataro of 7 Train to Shea that the Mets "have put out word to teams" that Jose Reyes is available and will look to trade him at the upcoming winter meetings.
It's easy to be skeptical here, but despite a down year, Reyes remains one of the game's best shortstops and could bring back real value in a trade. Besides, it would be silly for new Mets GM Sandy Alderson to say any player is untouchable. According to Pignataro, the Red Sox, Orioles and Rays have all kicked the tires on the situation. Reyes, 27, is under contract for $11 million next season, after which he will become a free agent for the first time in his career.

Yes, it makes great sense, up until the part where Reyes makes $11,000,000.
The Rays are cutting payroll drastically this offseason, unless they are going to be offering a ton of talent to get the Mets to eat part of that contract I just don't see it.

Everything I have heard about the Rays is that they need to cut payroll, which is why Crawford and Pena will walk. Maybe this might make sense if they trade a guy like Shields to the Mets, and then deal Bartlett to someone else thereby making the combined salaries a wash.

If the Red Sox want him they have more resources to trade for him unfortunately. I'd love to see the Orioles get Reyes, but I don't see how they can come up with a package that wouldn't destroy the core of this team and that the Red Sox couldn't beat.

Does Reyes have a no-trade clause?
Hopefully the O's didn't call and hang up immediately. I want the Mets to be number 1 on speed dial!!!
