Meet the Mets
In a move you finally can’t blame on ownership, MLB players voted to nominate Jose Reyes for the Marvin Miller “Man of the Year” Award. Reyes, of course, was suspended for a domestic violence incident a couple of years back, and then sued for non-payment of child support by his mistress in 2017. It’s also notable that while every other nominated player’s profile on the nomination site mentions their extensive charitable endeavors, Reyes’ profile mentions none.
