Wright reacts to Reyes’s departure
It took him nearly a week, but David Wright finally got around to wishing his buddy Jose Reyes a public farewell. After scheduling and then canceling a conference call with reporters on Monday, Wright issued this statement through the Mets late Friday afternoon:
“Jose’s a great friend and a great player. While I will miss him as a friend and teammate, I’m glad he was able to get the contract that he earned and deserved. I truly wish him all the best in Miami. I have trust and faith that we will have a much improved and exciting team and 2012 will be a great year for the Mets. “
