I'm not surprised, the Mets usually get their man of the FA market.
David Wrights SLG dropped from .534 to .447 last year. Nearly 100 points. I dunon if it was Citi or just David Wright
Bay was ranked second to last defensively in terms of defense for full time LFer’s last year and that was with the Green Monster:http://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?p ... 09&month=0
I mean, if Citi lowers Bay’s SLG drastically like Wright’s, and Citi’s giant LF only exploits his defense even more, is he really even a 15 million dollar player for the next four years? 15 million is a awful lot for Bay. I like Bay a lot but I dunno if he is the right player for the Mets and for that type of contract. He is half the play Holliday is, and Matt is looking at a 18 million AAV now. I just don’t understand, why Omar chose to pay Bay over Holliday
