It has now reached such a desperate point for the New York Mets that they’re “internally debating” the possibility of bringing back Jose Reyes.
If you were one of the New York Mets fans who brought the name of Jose Reyes up in conversation a week ago, you might have been scoffed at.
In fact, odds are you were laughed hysterically at.
No chance this Mets club led by the regime of Sandy Alderson would ever do such a thing. Right?
Well, perhaps he would. That is, if the debate goes pro-Reyes.
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the Mets are “debating internally” whether Reyes “would be worth the public-relations fallout.”
The Colorado Rockies rid themselves of the much discussed 33-year old shortstop by designating him for assignment on Jun. 15 after he completed a 59-game suspension for an off-the-field domestic violence incident.
Obviously, Reyes is a home-grown Met who played nine seasons in New York from 2003 until 2011.
Another option recently discussed by the hapless Mets has been Cuban prospect Yulieski Gourriel, via Jon Heyman.
mets people are weighing yuliesky gurriel for 3B. would seem to be good fit at the moment.

The third-baseman is currently being vouched for hard by his buddy Yoenis Cespedes.
