Thats two big hits to my Fantasy Boyz, (Salary Cap League) First Cliff Lee to the Mariners, and now Jay Bay to the Mets. Both will see there numbers take a turn for the worst. :-t

Back to the drawing board,

I think Cliff Lee will be just fine in Safeco.


Hope So. At $3 (last year in his Contract, for my league) I have to keep him, its a Steal None The Less. }:-)

Joel Sherman of the New York Post writes that Bay has a four-year, $66MM agreement with an easy fifth-year vesting option. The 2014 vesting option appears to be worth more than $14MM, as ESPN's Jerry Crasnick tweets that Bay's deal could be worth "slightly more than $80MM over five years." Sherman cautions that Bay's physical "might not be a formality."

if there is actually an easy 5th year vesting option this is definitely overpaying by the mets imo.

5/80 for Bay would steer this one towards really questionable, not like Bay could've gotten anything better from anyone else. At that point, it starts to become why didn't the Mets just get Holliday, he won't be that much more of an investment.

I'm going to be really interested to see the final deal since Peter Gammons says the Met's offer was so backloaded that the present-day value was less than what the Red Sox offered.

Lee will be fine in SafeCo is right, and from a Mets fan, this is really the only thing we could do to improve the offense other than Holliday, but he already had less power than Bay, it would be like Holliday as an A all over again.

Now we just need to get Joel Pineiro and hopefully we have something to get Zambrano, who could most likely be had, but it would dramatically drain the farm and it would have to be built up again. Harang can plant his tush in a Reds uni, I don't want him anywhere near this Mets team when we're not playing the Reds.

Physical issues with Bay, huh? Can nothing go right for the Mets?? :-b Kind of clears up why Minaya was pursuing him over Holliday now... !+)
