Happy wife, happy life.

Usually when a free agent signs a massive contract like Jose Reyes just did with the Miami Marlins, he immediately moves his family to its new home. But Reyes, the long-time Mets star, tells the New York Times he doesn't plan on moving his loved ones from the Big Apple to South Florida until at least 2013. And Reyes is taking another step to ease the transition after he inked a $106 million, six-year contract in December.

Reyes shaved off his trademark dreadlocks at the request of the team, but he also says he plans to keep a shorter hair style to keep his bride happy.

"She like short hair; she don’t like the long hair at all," he told the Times.

The former King of Queens is looking forward to April 24, when his Marlins return to Citi Field to take on the Mets. Reyes says it going to be "real crazy" when he's back in the ballpark he thrived in for so long.
