He had to know this was coming. I knew this was coming. Most fans in this forum knew this was coming. When Jeffrey Loria signed Jose Reyes to a backloaded 6-year contract, Jose had to know he was going to be traded within two years of signing it. I didn't think the trade would be after year one but i can't say i was surprised either. It's just the way Loria rolls.
How disgusting though that Loria wanted him to buy a house in Miami knowing a trade was in the works? How disgusting!?
I'm sure Jose will do well in Toronto. Damned he would have been a great fit on this team. Tejada could have platooned at second base with Murphy while serving as the backup short stop. The infield would be stronger leaving us about two legitimate, not great but legitimate, outfielders away from being a bonifide good ballclub.
