    From today's Daily News (Andy Martino): "Plus, the view of Wright over Reyes as Face of the Franchise has always seemed from this view to be racially loaded. They were both so good, and two of the nicest people in baseball; why did the white guy become such a fan favorite?" Maybe because 90-95% of the fans at Citi Field are white? And the Wilponzi's (for once) recognized what is good for business by catering to their fanbase?

    When McGwire and Sosa were doing the Home Run race in '98 a few times a week there were articles of fans in Washington Heights who "took great pride" in openly rooting for Sosa because of his ethnicity, complete with photos of cars adorned with banners and soap writing on the windows. It was considered a morale boosting good thing. If someone was interviewed in the suburbs and stated he was a McGwire fan because "he's white" he'd get blasted as a bigot with no tolerance.

    When the Mets were tanking, all the Latinos on the team (Reyes, Beltran, Delgado) were "No Habla"ing when questioned by reporters so a first or second year Wright became the spokesman for the team. If I was Wright, I would have fled Citi Field when I was a free agent, trying to make my way to Baltimore and get back on the HOF track in that bandbox.

    Also, Reyes wanted a huge contract, when his legs were his game, and he was getting injured all the time. Now he gets to play on the shit turf in Toronto, and it will take a few years off his career.

    You don't do things or say what you want to say because you're afraid of being called a name?

    Toughen up.

    Yeah, but that was mainly Delgado. Beltran is an equal opportunity constant complainer to anyone who will listen, white, black or hispanic. Reyes always seemed like such an energetic and good guy. In the top 3 of my all time favorite ballplayers.

    You see it time and time again, ethnic people are encouraged, allowed, and expected to root fanatically for someone of their own ethnicity. But it's the complete opposite for White people. Without White people filling up these stadiums in pro sports, where White people are the minority on these team's rosters, would there even be Professional sports leagues in this country?

    At this point I'd rather pay Reyes $22 million than Wright $20 million. But who knew. Why didn't the Yankees keep Cano, they never shied away from over paying before and certainly not the home grown talent.

    Because Cano isn't a face of the franchise player, and he was a product of Yankee Stadium. All his numbers besides batting average were down last year, and this year that has tanked down to .237. He doesn't talk, is aloof, and a very fair weather player.

    Also, w/ his 2 best buddies Melky and A-roid getting popped for PEDs, I don't this the Yankees wanted to hang their hat on him. 2 yrs in and Seattle is regretting the contract.

    Reyes is overrated.
    How many times has he scored over 100 runs since he left NY?
    He has scored 17 runs with 9 stolen bases this season......:facepalm:

    Making this a racial thing is ponderous.

    The Wilpons are too busy building malls and hotels on public park property and raping Mets and SNY receipts to give two shits about the Mets. Ever since they pushed out Nelson Doubleday the team has been more disastrous then ever starting with the building of shitty field an homage to the Brooklyn dodgers.
