With Michael Morse back, what happens to Jason Bay?

Possible Scenario Yesterday the Seattle Mariners announced that Michael Morse, the power-hitting slugger who opened the season with impressive numbers, had completed his rehab stint at AAA Tacoma and would be rejoining the team in Boston. Today’s afternoon contest will mark the first time since June 22 that Morse has been with the squad, as he had previously strained his right quad...

Jason Bay: Future Texas Ranger?

Texas Rangers’ General Manager Jon Daniels has never been known to sit by idly when it comes to improving his team. In recent years Daniels has shown the tendency to look into players that for one reason or another fit into the mold of a “low risk high reward” type. Players that usually fall into this classification are either attempting to make a return from major injury, are at...

Does savvy and a home state reunion spell success for the Mariners Jason Bay?

Love ‘Em & Hate ‘Em Style After ten years of professional baseball, Jason Bay has returned to the state where he played his college ball. An illustrious career at Gonzaga landed him in the Padres organization, and in 2004, Bay won the NL rookie of the year with the Pittsburg Pirates. Prior to the 2010 season, Bay signed with the Mets. The deal will result in over $63 million...

What can Jason Bay bring to the M’s in 2013?

Are there positives to signing Bay? Despite a flurry of rumors, the Seattle Mariners had a quiet close to the winter meetings. The one big deal seemed to be the signing of Jason Bay to a 1 year deal. After a disappointing three seasons with the New York Mets, what should the M’s be expecting from Bay heading into 2013? Possible power potential If the Mariners are hoping for any offensive...

What Mariners fans can expect out of the Seattle Jason Bay signing

Coming Home (ish) The Mariners finally made a move while at the Winter meetings.  While the Seattle franchise has been linked to just about every free agent that can hit above .220, the M’s agreed to terms with Mets outfielder Jason Bay. I had a rush of emotion about this when I heard about it.  First I got caught up in the memories of Bay’s 36 home runs for the Red Sox in 2009 and...

Heyman: Bay’s Salary Being Deferred For Only Two Years

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports writes that Jason Bay may have gotten a better deal for himself by leaving the Mets than he did when he initially signed with them. Not only will Bay be paid the entire $21 million he is owed by the Mets, as has been reported, but the $15 million that is being deferred under the terms of the severance agreement is to be paid by the end of 2015, meaning the...

From Left Field: Wishing Jason Bay The Best

So the inevitable has occurred, albeit much later than originally expected: Jason Bay is no longer a New York Met. I’m sure there is much joy about this decision in Mets nation and rightfully so. The Bay signing will go down as the worst free agent contract in Mets history. That said, I’m wishing Bay the best of luck in resurrecting his career with another team, preferably in the...

Met’s Won’t Release Jason Bay, So What’s Next For The Slugger?

It comes as no surprise that the New York Mets have gone on record as saying they will not be releasing Jason Bay prior to the 2013 season. With the amount of money that is invested in Jason Bay, it is better to hang on to him and see if he can turn it around, instead of getting nothing in return for the investment. In the business world, these are considered sunk costs – costs...

Using the past to predict Jason Bay’s future

Since they have not released him, it is apparent that the Mets think Jason Bay has a future. However, it’s impossible for those of us who don’t personally owe him at least $19 million to get that same opinion by watching him in the present. So, the only thing left to do is examine the past and hope that there’s someone in baseball’s rich history that we can point to as an example...

Jason Bay: The Player That Lost His Way

What ever happened to Jason Bay?  We have seen flashes of his old self over the past three years, but this is looking more and more like one of the worst signings in New York Mets history.  The Mets are basically starting every game with 24 outs when he’s in the lineup, and when you factor in the pitcher, it’s more like 21. I know a lot of Mets fans questions why they keep marching...
