JUPITER, Fla. -- Free of his trademark dreadlocks, Jose Reyes reported for work Thursday morning at Roger Dean Stadium, beginning life as a Miami Marlin.
While he expressed hurt feelings last December that the Mets didn't try harder to keep him, Reyes said he was now fully ready to move forward.
"That's in the past," Reyes told reporters. "I can't worry about what happened there. I need to focus on this team."
"I'm not there," Reyes said. "They can do whatever they want to with number 7."
"It's crazy, man," Reyes said. "It's good. He's a guy who has a lot of energy, too. The fans like that. He brings a winning attitude. In New York, that is the most important thing, winning. When you are winning, it's so good."
