I just finished “An Arm and a Leg” by Emma Span, a Kindle single (not just for those with the cute little eBook).
It’s an essay about Jose Reyes: his life, his career and how he will affect the Mets if they do or do not sign him come October.
It’s a quick and wonderful read, reminding me of all the great things Jose has done during his tenure as a New York Met (most importantly make fans forget about Rey Ordonez).
It’s not just stats, though Emma gets into OPS+, WAR and VORP. (Don’t be scared.) She also gets into the man, the affable one with the smile, the jokes and the charm.
I suggest shilling out your 99 cents and reading this. (Yeah, you can read it without a Kindle.) It will make you warm and fuzzy for Jose Reyes, and then make you fear the day we ever see him in a non-Mets uniform.
