Mets: So Long, Jason Bay

Mets: So Long, Jason Bay

Hyped by on November 7, 2012 Website: www.newyorksportsworld.com

The New York Mets made a mutual agreement with Jason Bay to terminate the remaining two years of his contract to make him a free agent this year. They both agreed that a new, fresh start with a different team would be beneficial for both clubs. Mets fans were understandably very harsh on Bay since he came to Queens because he never became what the Mets hoped he would be, which was being a power hitter in the middle of the order. While Bay still believes he is capable of putting up better numbers, the New York media and fans probably got to his head.

Before coming to the Mets, Bay spent five and half seasons in Pittsburgh where he became a two-time all-star and the center piece of the Pirates. Later in 2008, he was traded to the Boston Red Sox, as they tried to improve their already contending team. Ultimately that move worked out because in ’09 the Red Sox won the World Series with help from their slugger, who put together 36 homeruns and 119 RBI’s in the regular season. That year, he was also an all-star, making his third appearance in the All-Star Game.
