Mets terminate Jason Bay's contract

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. -- The unhappy alliance between outfielder Jason Bay and the Mets has come to an end.

The Mets announced in a statement that they have reached an agreement with Bay to terminate his contract two years early, granting him unconditional free agency.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

"I still feel I have plenty to give to this game and that I can play baseball at a high level. But after serious consideration, both sides agree that we would benefit from a fresh start," Bay said in a team-issued statement. "I'm grateful we were able to reach an agreement to allow that to happen."

Letting him go was a dumb move by the Red Sox...I wouldn't mind seeing him back...

1. I'd give him a one year deal.

With an option.

2. They dumped Jason to take what's his face...that lousy Angels pitcher...

See, I'm blocking bad memories!

3. Yeah, that guy that hung out on the bench all season...what was his name?

Lackey!

That deal was one of many colossal blunders.

5. Most of them moved on and off of it.

This is the one that just sat there.

6. That's true...even Dice-K got up every once in a while to give up 10 runs

in the first inning and then go back and sit down!

10. I don't think paying him what the Mets did was smart either.

Bay's time in Boston set his price tag much higher than his value actually was. Someone was going to get screwed on that deal, but I think they'd gladly bring him back on a short-money, short-term contract. For Bay, returning to a ballpark like Fenway might be great rehab for his career.
