Well, we know Reyes, and we know the big contract was a high risk due to Reyes's injury history. There's no doubt in my mind that Reyes is slowing down. We fans should be thankful for having Reyes, and all the good years he gave us.
Age is an issue concerning Reyes, but, age is not an issue concerning Dickey, and especially that Dickey is not demanding a huge long term contract.
I agree, The Mets must come to terms on an agreement.
