It's Mets For Me: Off-Beat, Tangentially Relevant Mets Ruminations

Oh Bay-bee!

Jason Bay is reported to be on his way to cashing a paycheck signed by a Wilpon, just the "splash" that NY fans are said to demand during the winter. Is having a real left fielder going to fix what ails this team? Probably not. And no one seems that impressed. But this is the Makeshift Mets, and beggar-fans can't be chooser-fans. Plus, without Bay, who will stand behind David Wright as opponent's club Mets pitching, and watch the hits soar over their heads?

I will optimistically chose to see this acquisition as an opportunity to give a big Burnitz-Bonilla welcome back to a former son. In the future, I hope to see the Mets continue along in this vein, and reclaim other products of their productive farm system, such as Scott K*zmir, Lastings M*llidge, and Jose Reyes.

    I guess nobody sat down and considered the significant pay raises that David Wright and Jose Reyes will (potentially) be receiving when the Mets are paying Bay's pension in two years.

    Eh, I'm not impressed.

    Miss ya IMFM. Don't think I've forgotten you just bc I moved to the South. Say hello sometime. :)

    I'm with you. The addition of Bay guarantees third place. I will not criticize Omar for the signing itself, except to say that he has everything backward. He should have gone after some top pitching first, and very hard. But he is Omar.

    Wow, blast from my recent past! Seeing SpringSandra (aka Springfan) still out there responding to the best Mets blog out there (and yes I mean IMFM!) is refreshing.

    Hope everyone has a great 2010, well Beltran isn't going to help that!
