Looking for bodies to plug in to their gaping holes, the Cleveland Indians continue to be linked to veteran outfielder Jason Bay. The latest comes from ESPN’s Buster Olney who states that the 34-year old is in search of “familiarity” when it comes to his future employer. Indians on a short list of teams being considered by Jason Bay, who is looking for opportunity and a place where there is some familiarity. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) November 13, 2012 The former All-Star is coming off of a season he would likely forget if given the chance, providing a slash line of .165/.237/.299 (OPS of .536) with eight home runs and 20 runs batted in for the New York Mets. Rouhly one week ago, the Mets agreed to pay Bay $21 million as a settlement to no longer play for them going forward. Terry Francona managed Bay in Boston from 2008-2009. Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reported last week that the British Columbia native would prefer to sign with a team on the West Coast, so it’s not a sure thing that he’ll sign with Cleveland.
