Four days before the Winter Meetings, and the speculation is heating up like aluminum foil in a microwave. The Mets allegedly revealed their potential offer to Jose Reyes, and talk of relief (pitching, not the removal of something distressing, or a mode of sculpture in which forms and figures are distinguished from a surrounding plane surface) abounds. GM Sandy Alderson held a couple of press conferences this week to talk about such matters, the most recent, and hour-long conference call with some Mets bloggers. In other news, former Mets skipper Bobby Valentine was named the new field boss for the Boston Red Sox.
