Jose Reyes watched Game 3 of the American League Championship Series from a Times Square hotel, looking on as his old teammates with the Toronto Blue Jays won their first game of the series against the Kansas City Royals.
If we told you back in April that the Blue Jays were in the ALCS, you’d probably figure that Reyes would be in the starting lineup. But then, in a shocking move, the shortstop was traded to the Colorado Rockies for Troy Tulowitzki.

Reyes also won a hot-dog dressing contest against chef Andrew Carmellini of Sausage Boss, so when we joined us for a special StewPod discussion, we had the opportunity to ask him a number of things. Like, his position in the age-old Internet debate about whether a hot dog is a sandwich:
“A hot dog is a hot dog,” he said. “A lot of people say it’s a sandwich?”
He also talked about the Mets, with whom he played for a number of season, and his friend David Wright: “He’s like my brother. They’re in good shape now.” And we asked which players had impressed him this postseason: “The New York Mets pitching staff,” he said.
Reyes also wasn’t a big fan of the slide that broke Ruben Tejada’s leg, saying “that slide was late,” among other things.
We also delved into his offseason plans, his rapping abilities and which other players in MLB can spit rhymes.
