Is Reyes to Marlins worse than Strawberry to Dodgers in 1990?

Reyes may certainly go on to do great things in his career. Though he may also get injured and become a shell of the former player never reaching his potential. Time will tell. ----- Well, that's pretty much what happened with Strawberry. Straw was 29 years old in 1990. He had over 250 or so home runs. He was on pace to have a shot at the 500, 600 or 700 HR club (yes, before steriods were in vogue; or as they were becoming popular). But as much as Straw's departure hurt, it was somewhat lessend going forward by his complete burn out. He left the Mets in 1990 with great potential to smash records and finished, albeit somewhat stingingly with the Yankees, with only 335 HRs. A career with so much promise in 1990, virtually crashed and burned. ------ Sure, Reyes decision hurts now. But as the lesson from Straw shows, its really what they do from here that determines how bad it really was. We shall see.
