Jose Reyes Newsbeat

But will he get special treatment?
Even if the Dominican-born Reyes reaches a plea deal, however, there are potential serious ramifications to Reyes’ career if he is not a U.S. citizen. According to Michael Wildes, a former federal prosecutor and a managing partner at Wildes & Weinberg, convictions for domestic violence can lead to deportation.
“Domestic violence can see an individual get deported if he or she is not a U.S. citizen,” said Wildes. “Once punished, the government has the authority to remove an individual for a crime involving moral turpitude and aggravated felony. It can be a very fast track for immigration officials to issue a removal proceeding. The only way to prevent removal is to be exonerated or have the charges dismissed, or if the government believes it’s a “he said, she said” matter. I would hope Mr. Reyes has a good immigration lawyer.”

Jerry Jones likes his leadership.
Jose Reyes was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife, according to Hawaii News Now.
According to the news station, the incident between the Rockies shortstop and his wife, Katherine Ramirez, took place in a hotel room in Maui on Oct. 31.
Reyes, the former Mets shortstop, allegedly grabbed her and shoved her while they were having an argument. Ramirez reportedly told police he grabbed her by the throat and shoved into a sliding glass balcony door.
According to the news station, hotel security called police, and the 32-year-old Reyes was arrested in the room.

Jose Reyes, winning over teammates since 2003.
He’s not interested in playing for a team that isn’t competitive. And the Rockies, on pace for another 95-loss season, likely aren’t interested in an aging, high-priced veteran. Colorado owes Reyes more than $56 million through the 2017 season. He’s now their highest-paid player.
“You come from a ballclub that was competing for a spot in the playoffs. And you come to a club in last place. You think about that,” Reyes said of the trade that ripped him out of Toronto. The Blue Jays, with Tulowitzki, have surged into a battle with the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East.
“I’m at the point in my career that I want to win,” Reyes said. “I say it over and over. I want to win. I don’t want to spend the rest of my career on a last-place team. That’s not the kind of player I feel like I am.”

Unless the Rockies would be picking up a LOT of cash, this sounds like a bad idea for the Yankees.
It’s no surprise Reyes cleared waivers as he’s surely worth a bit less than the $55 million remaining in his Marlins deal that goes through 2017. Reyes doesn’t really feel like a fit in Colorado (originally, they had preferred to do the deal without him), and while he was polite about it, Reyes sounded like a guy who wouldn’t mind a return to New York and the Mets in interviews when the Rockies came to Citi Field this week.

Reyes, a shell of his former self, longs to play for a contender and wants to finish his career in New York.
When I retire, I’m going to go home and say, ‘I played for what?’ You know, if I don’t win anything.”
This is some sad stuff!!!
