Jason Bay stinks

May 6, 2010

 

Jason Bay was 0 for 4 with two more K's on Wednesday

Entering the 2010 season, one of my lesser concerns was Jason Bay and his adaptation to New York City.  Based off what he did replacing Manny Ramirez in Boston, I had no reason to doubt that Bay would find his place in Queens and serve as a lethal threat out of the clean-up spot.   In 2009 for the Red Sox, Jason Bay belted 36 home runs and racked up 119 RBI’s while hitting .267 and swiping 13 bases.  Those stats alone were more than worthy of a $70 million contract. 

After five weeks into the 2010 season, however, Jason Bay is starting to remind me of Carlos Beltran in 2005.  Read the rest of this entry ?

The Mets Spring Training Report: Volume 5

March 31, 2010

The light at the end of the tunnel

Any Met fan knows how tough it has been to be 100% supportive of the organization over the last four to five years. Nothing but perennial heartbreak and embarrassment after lofty expectations each year, combined with despicable starting pitching and lack of clutch hitting.  Nevertheless, this spring we saw the emergence of two young studs in Ike Davis and Jenrry Mejia to go along with the continued progression of Fernando Martinez.  Jason Bay is also here, Wright is hitting home runs, and Santana is healthy, and with a bona-fide ace there is hope that the pitching staff and this entire Mets team can be competitive.  Likewise, the re-emergence of Jose Reyes has been a weight off the shoulder for many.

“It’s great to see him back, smiling and just doing Jose,” said David Wright.  “I think everyone was concerned when he had the health issue but now I think spirits are back up.”  Read the rest of this entry ?

The Mets Spring Training Report: Volume 3

March 16, 2010

The Big Apple will not phase Jason Bay

Jason Bay arrived this spring as cool as he entered Boston in 2008.  He immediately befriended David Wright, Alex Cora and Jeff Francoeur, and clearly was not overwhelmed by the abundance of reporters and cameras. 

“He’s coming into another situation — we didn’t have a great year last year, everybody knows with the injuries and all that stuff,’’ said Cora. “He comes here and you see him walking around with his coffee, it seems like he’s been here for five, six years, and that’s great for us. That’s refreshing for us.’’

Few doubted whether Bay could adapt to New York because he did such a great job in Boston replacing Manny Ramirez.  However, with the injury to Beltran, and the mysterious aura surrounding Jose Reyes, Jason Bay’s role just got larger, and a fast start from him will go a long way in erasing the dark cloud engulfing the Mets organization.   Read the rest of this entry ?

Mets sign Bay, close with Molina

December 29, 2009

The Amazing's have a pulse

Free-agent outfielder Jason Bay has reached agreement on a four-year, guaranteed $66 million contract with the New York Mets, a baseball source confirmed to ESPN.com Tuesday.

The agreement will become official once Bay passes a physical exam sometime next week, the source said. The deal includes a vesting option year that could increase Bay’s overall payout to slightly more than $80 million over five years.

Momma didn’t raise no fool…

Omar Minaya has one more chance to get this right.

 

Does Omar Minaya take Mets fans for idiots?

Four years at $65 million for Jason Bay? Is he serious?

An offer like that is not only egregious, but a spat in the face of Mets fans, and an equally saliva-filled loogie in the eye of Bay. Read the rest of this entry ?

Mets GM Omar Minaya will make plenty of phone calls this off-season

This article is from Ken Davidoff’s piece in the Nov. 25 edition of Newsday

The Yankees have been so deliberate this offseason that their own free agent, Johnny Damon – whom the Yankees want back – expressed frustration Tuesday that he hasn’t heard yet from Brian Cashman.

Consider the Mets, then, to be the anti-Yankees. If you’re a free agent and you haven’t heard from the Mets, you might want to make sure your cell-phone service (or that of your agent) hasn’t been canceled.

With needs for a slugging outfielder, a first baseman, a catcher and a starting pitcher, “We’re keeping all of our avenues open,” a team official said Tuesday.

Hence the expressions of interest in first basemen such as Russell Branyan and Nick Johnson, not to mention the Mets’ own free agent Carlos Delgado. And in starting pitchers such as Joel Piñeiro, Jason Marquis and Randy Wolf, in addition to Ben Sheets, who missed all of the 2009 season rehabilitating from right elbow surgery and therefore won’t be able to demand a great amount of money.
