Strawberry's advice to Reyes: Stay in New York


NEW YORK (AP) - Darryl Strawberry has some advice for Jose Reyes: Stay in New York.

Reyes can become a free agent after the season, so he might be playing his final few games with the Mets on the team's current homestand. Strawberry, the club's career leader in home runs and RBIs, was in a similar position back in 1990 as a homegrown star about to hit the free market in the prime of his career.

Fed up with management, Strawberry bolted to sign with his hometown team, the Los Angeles Dodgers. Looking back, he says if he had to do it all over again he never would have left New York.

He says New York fans never forget players who have success, and Reyes can leave an incredible legacy in the Big Apple.
