Report: Mystery team exceeds four years for Bay

Dec 12, 2009, 6:12 PM EST

Updating a previous item, a major league source told WEEI.com that a mystery team has exceeded four years for free agent outfielder Jason Bay.



The only two known offers at this point:



Four-years, $60 million – Red Sox

Four-years, $63 million – Mets



After agent Joe Urbon’s comments earlier today
and the skepticism following the Mets’ initial offer, it doesn’t take a
huge leap of logic to think the offer came from Omar Minaya and
company. I suppose we can’t dismiss the Mariners, either, though it’s hard to believe they would be that silly.

My big question is that if Bay somehow manages to squeeze five
years and $80 million out of somebody, how much does Matt Holliday make?

    If reports are true about Bay wanting 6 years, it might be best for the sox to let him go considering the free agents class coming out next year. The sox do have options meaning they can pick up stop gaps for a year until next year’s FA group. It’d be hard to swallow for sox fans, but patience sometimes pays off in the end.

    Maybe Mr. Bay is more interested in moving to Seattle to be closer to home and that the money part isn’t important? Maybe, but probably not!

    DONT SEE WHERE BAY IS THAT VALUABLE. BUNCH OF PITCHERS FAR, FAR BETTER. HE IS ASKING JUST ABOUT TWICE WHAT HE IS WORTH. I CAN NAME 15 PITCHERS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE ALONE THAT ARE AT LEAST 2 IF NOT 3 TIMES BETTER THEN BAY.

    Maybe they are better off waiting untill next year and sign Manny Ramirez to a multi year deal.

    Being smaller is no crime, if everybody else around you is taller, it is obvious you would wish to look taller also.
