Miami Marlins Rumors: Jose Reyes May Have To Decide Between Mets, Marlins

Jose Reyes was supposed to be one of the biggest names on the free agent market this season. That still might be the case, but the market for him has not been quite as fruitful as some might have been expecting. According to Mark Polishuk of MLB Trade Rumors, Jose Reyes might have to choose between the Mets and the Marlins, as all of the other interested teams seems to have fallen by the wayside.

The Braves, Giants and Phillies are out of the bidding, according to SI.com's Jon Heyman, with the Brewers and Tigers seen as "iffy" or very unlikely candidates by Heyman and CBSSports.com's Danny Knobler.  So, unless a fringe suitor like the Red Sox get involved, it may be down to just the two NL East rivals.

If it's between the Mets and the Marlins, the Marlins might have an advantage because they are the new team in the picture with a new stadium and all sorts of excitement surrounding them. If Reyes is tired of the Mets, it seems like the Marlins might be his only option.
