Met overtakes Yankee as MLB 2K8 cover athlete
by Blake Snow
2K Sports on Thursday named Jose Reyes of the Mets as the cover athlete for MLB 2K8, a position that was held by Yankee Derek Jeter for the last two years.
"This is the first time I have ever been on the cover of a video game and it is very exciting to be a part of the best video game out there," Reyes said of his newest endorsement deal.
Although the .317 career-hitting Yankee is the better player, we're guessing he can do without the added video game royalties. Jeter earned a salary of $21,600,000 in 2007, seven and half times more than Reyes's still luxurious take of $2,875,000.
Major League Baseball 2K8 will be available spring 2008 for Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, and Wii
