This is really a shame. It seemed like every player we wanted to get, Billy was able to convince to join the A's. I think Reyes would have pulled us about even with the Angels. I don't see any other free agent in the $2 million range that will be as valuable as Reyes. Reyes posted a 2.14 ERA over the last 3 years for the Twins.
Free agent Dennys Reyes has decided against signing the A's, FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports. That might put Joe Beimel in an Oakland uniform. Reyes is looking like a possibility for St. Louis. The Cardinals, though, are also considering Will Ohman as they look for a second veteran left-hander.
