Well, That Was an Interesting Turn of Events…

So apparently the Florida Miami Marlins have finished shipping off anyone that was making any money on that team. Now Jose Reyes is a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. Oddly enough, this turn of events actually makes me pretty happy.
I feel like now I can go back to rooting for Jose. When he was still a member of the Mets, Jose was by far my favorite player, and although it saddened me to see him go, it didn’t mean that I stopped liking him. There had been Mets that I liked that left the team in the past and I would continue to root for them, but the fact that Jose went on to join the hated Marlins complicated matters, especially since they’re in the same division and play the Mets so often. Being in another league and another country certainly lifts that restriction.
There’s also the added bonus that now that he’s in the A.L. East, he’ll be playing against the Yankees as often as he played against the Mets last year. I guess that means that I’ll actually go out of my way to tune into some Yankee games.
