In Boston, a total of two seasons, Bay regressed in the department of batting average. He hit .274/.380/.534. The biggest problem was injuries. Bay played in 151 games in 2009. Not bad, but not great.


I kind of lost interest in reading after that.

It's a good Plan B if things fall through with Ludwick IMO. Also, it's good leverage to use against Ludwick's agent. "Hey, we're about ready to sign Jason Bay on the cheap as our LF. You better accept our deal ASAP."

What part made you lose interest? I'm not seeing it.

As a flier for cheap (e.g. $2MM), sure. But I would want to have to count on him at all.

Bemoaning the regression in "the department of batting average" while also showing he OPS'd over .900 is also a good reason to stop reading.

Sounds like an article written by some of the guys I used to run into in my summer jobs during college. "I don't know why they keep putting Dunn out there in left field while Keppinger's on the bench. Now that boy can hit!"

No Thanks. His tenure at the Mets was awful, and it can't be entirely excused to injury IMO. He's a shell of his former self, 34 yrs old, and not getting any younger. Pass.

I don't have any strong feelings one way or another, but wouldn't those words have applied to Ryan Ludwick last off-season (substitute Padres for Mets)?

Exactly. The point of a guy like that is to get him on the cheap. Ludwick's going to be mildly expensive and it's a shaky bet that he'll repeat his 2012 performance. So maybe Bay could be next year's Ludwick, or at least he wouldn't cost that much if he were mildly productive and sharing the job with Paul and Heisey.

Ludwick (in Petco for most of the time) was a good bit better in 10 and 11 than Bay was in 11 and 12. I'm not ruling Bay out, but keep that in mind when attempting a Ludwick comp

Yeah, but Citi Field wasn't a much better place to hit than Petco...

Pass. Bay is toast. I think if the Mets had any hope of Bay improving with moved in fences at Citi they wouldn't have released him. Bay has been trending down for a couple of years and I don't know if he can even play serviceable OF anymore.

Bay has had concussion problems. He's been damaged goods for a while now.

Gotta say this about Bay: he sure can knows when to run.

In the SB Department he has seasons of 21 for 22, 11 for 12, 11 for 13, two seasons of 10 for 10. 92 lifetime steals at 85%.

Only 2 doubles last year, something's wrong with him. I'd take a flyer if he comes super cheap.

The opening post on the Sundeck Bay thread has Bay at 35 HR next year if the Reds sign him....so there is that.
