As Jose Reyes warmed up before last night's return to Citi Field for his first game against the Mets, an angry fan behind the Marlins' dugout yelled to Hanley Ramirez, who was alongside Reyes near home plate.

"Hanley, don't stand in front of Jose,'' the irritated fan screamed. "He'll stab you in the back. He's a traitor!'' Ramirez laughed and turned to Reyes and gave him a friendly boo. "You'll be the shortstop in a month, Hanley,'' another fan yelled, "after Reyes tears his hamstring.''

Welcome back, Jose.

The night got worse for Reyes and the Marlins as the Mets beat Miami, 2-1.

During the short video tribute to Reyes before the game, there were more boos than cheers and some indifference from another small crowd, 20,192. Reyes watched from in front of the Marlins' dugout with Ramirez at his side. The video was not announced. It was a 70-second montage of Reyes. At the end of the video, the Mets posted a Bob Hope-like: "Thanks for the memories.''

When Reyes was introduced as the first batter a few minutes later, it was 95 percent boos from the crowd. Reyes immediately drove a shot to center off Johan Santana, but Kirk Nieuwenhuis made a leaping catch at the 385 sign, sending him to an 0-for-4 night and dropping his average to .215.
