My guess is that Jose will be gone



 hate to be negative, but I think that Jose will be leaving.

Think about the last game of the season, when Jose took himself out after getting a single to protect his batting title chances. Why did the manager let us know that Jose took himself out? Why didn't Collins say that it was a management decision to sit Jose? They could have said that they wanted to avoid having him play the field to minimize the chance of injury, but wanted to give the fans a chance to see him hit - hence his removal after he led off.

That seems like standard practice to protect your player. So why didn't they do that? Maybe they realize that Jose will be gone, and they wanted to minimize the fan disappointment by poisoning the well.

My guess is that the Mets will give him a reasonable offer, but an offer that both parties know will not be the best, and will not get the job done.

We'll find out soon enough.
