Mistreated Former Met Plans To Retire

Former Mets left fielder Jason Bay last week indicated there is a great likelihood that he will file for retirement from Major League Baseball. Shi Davidi tweeted: "Jason Bay says while he hasn't filed any papers yet, he can't see a scenario in which he comes back to play, so he's essentially retiring." Bay was much maligned in his brief Mets career, which...

Remembering Jason Bay

When I saw the news that Jason Bay was likely to retire, I had a bit of an "awww" moment. Though his time with the Red Sox was short-lived (less than two full seasons), I personally really liked having him in Boston. When Bay came to the Red Sox, it was controversial and I'd bet that most fans were unsure about it, including myself. He came to us via a three-team...

It is with deep regret that I inform you all the Jason Bay appears to be retiring from the game of baseball. Ok, enough with the sarcasm.

The Jason Bay roller coaster has finally idled to a complete stop

It looks as if the career of OF Jason Bay is finally coming to an end. As many would say (particularly fans of the New York Mets), it will probably be three years too late. It is self explanatory to describe the drop in Bay’s production; which saw a six year run with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Boston Red Sox where he was a top ten power hitting OF in all of MLB over that span that...

Seattle Mariners’ Jason Bay may be retiring soon

Sooner or later, every professional athlete will end up questioning if they want to continue doing what they love or not. Nobody plays their sport for forever, because that’s impossible.

Never Mind the Bays — Mets Take Granderson

If you think wins are worth closer to seven million dollars a year, and that Curtis Granderson is a three-win player next year — reasonable assumptions, given the work of some, and the projections we have on our site — then giving him four years and $60 million is not a problem. It’s almost dead on. The problem comes when you realize that this is almost the exact same deal...

A Mets fan’s Thanksgiving poem

One day is there of the season Termed Thanksgiving day, Celebrated part in maybe, Part as yesterday. Neither Alderson nor Wilpon, I do disrespect or praise; Seems it, to my wayward thinking, Unfair in its ways.

If Mets aren’t spending big, they must be better bargain hunters

The Mets hate talking about their budget nearly as much as they loathe, say, discussing the Vince Coleman years. You can understand. They have all the accouterments of a big-market team — rabid Northeast fan base, relatively new stadium, own TV network — yet they behave as, at best, a middle-market club. Blame Bernie Madoff. Or organizational whiplash from big deals gone bad...

Mets’ Management Insults Fans’ Intelligence

The last couple of off-seasons, many of us have entertained the possibility that the Mets would be daring and take a shot, only to be disappointed on a year-to-year basis.
