Cashman, Reyes shake off trade talk
NEW YORK -- Mets shortstop Jose Reyes said earlier this week that he would not begin contract negotiations until the end of the season, but that has not stopped rumors from circulating.

There has been speculation that Reyes, who is enjoying a spectacular year in the final season of his contract, could join the crosstown Yankees either via trade or as a free agent, but Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said in the New York Daily News on Thursday that the club was not interested in Reyes.

When asked about the news, Reyes said prior to a 4-1 win over the A's that he was focused on this season and the Mets. He showed no signs of distraction during the game, going 2-for-4 with two RBIs.

"I don't worry about that. I play for the New York Mets," Reyes said. "I don't care what he said. I'm focused on this team."
