The Mets got their first look at Jose Reyes in an opposing uniform when he led off for the Marlins yesterday, but manager Terry Collins insisted facing their former shortstop wasn't that big of a deal.

"I'm more interested in seeing Josh Johnson than Jose," Collins said of Miami's top starting pitcher.

Still, there's no denying a lineup with Andres Torres leading off and Omar Quintanilla at short — which is what the Mets used yesterday — is considerably different than one with Reyes. And having Reyes, who signed a six-year, $106 million deal in the offseason, in the other dugout made a difference.
