Oy Vey - The Mets have lost Jose Reyes

Adios Jose.  To the surprise of nobody, the Mets have lost Jose Reyes to the Miama Marlins who reportedly are giving him $106 million over 6 years.  According to a report from CBS News the Mets never made an offer to Jose.  IMHO Reyes should have gone back to the Mets to see if they could match the Marlins' offer.

Could this be a blessing in disguise for the Mets?  How much time over 6 years will Jose lose to injuries?  The Mets now have money to spend on other needs such as pitching.  Obviously Ruben Tejada will play shortstop while either Daniel Murphy or Justin Turner will be the starting second baseman.  It could be a very long season with lots of empty seats at Citifield.
