Jose Reyes' attitude keeps getting worse

First he threw his helmet when manager Jerry Manuel tried to take him out of a game. Then he slammed his glove to the ground like a Little Leaguer and pouted during last Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Yankees. Now he's confronting announcers.

Reyes and SNY analyst - and former Met - Keith Hernandez got into it after Reyes confronted Hernandez about comments he made about the Mets babying Jose. Hernandez had said that it was time for the Mets to "take off the kid gloves" when dealing with Reyes.

Everyone wants to compare Jose Reyes to Derek Jeter. Reyes may be younger and potentially better, but would Derek Jeter ever act like a 5-year-old on the field and then get into a heated exchange with Ken Singleton about it?
