06reyes.1.600Jose Reyes is getting alot of press these days.

His name keeps popping up in Santana rumors and denials.

And today the NY Times has a nice feature on Jose’s hometown and how he is spending his offseason.

The first paragraph got me worried, however:

Drive along the dusty, pothole-filled road, careful not to strike the roosters or stray dogs, until it dead-ends beside a stone staircase. Run up the steps, climb over the aqua-colored fence — or, for the less adventurous, slip through an open gate — and behold a field littered with avocado-size rocks and teeming with about 60 boys of all ages, many holding balls or gloves.

Avacado-size rocks? This doesn’t sound like a field for our prized shortstop. This guy used to pull hamstrings just getting out of bed. Minaya, Willie: get him off that field. We don’t care if he learned how to play baseball on it

Fortunately, Jose is building a new field…”This one will have a smooth infield and a wall that will not crumble when heavy rains fall.” Reassuring.
