Tomorrow, the Mets are likely to sign a player named Jose Reyes.  Reyes was arrested for domestic abuse and was suspended for two months. He is a free man mainly because his wife didn't press charges, but it seems clear that he is an abuser.

I hate this.  I don't want him on my team.  I don't want him in baseball.  He has done nothing to show that he's learned anything or changed.  So I am in this odd place now.  I cannot root against the Mets.  There is no way I can do that.  But I really won't feel that badly if they continue to struggle while he is on the team.  And I might abandon my Mets cap for a while.

Am I being a moralist?  Probably.  But sometimes I get that way.  Especially when it comes to things like abuse, and institutionalized sexism.

I think you should send this as a letter to the editor. (Probably the NY Times, unless Newsday still exists.)
