Jason Bay has passed his physical

Jan 4, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

SNY has learned — shocking, seeing as though they are owned by the Mets — that Jason Bay has passed his physical and now nothing aside from the creeping realization that he’s going to spend the next five years in New York stands in the way of him finalizing his deal. 

But he’ll probably get over it and sign anyway.

The press conference will be at 11 A.M. tomorrow morning.

    What’s funny is you probably don’t realize you’re a total douchebag.

    Whats funny is, he already signed, that happened on Christmas Day, all that was required was the Physical and the Press Confrence.
    Maybe take the time to actually research the facts before you go rambling about things you know little about.

    Richard — The Mets and Bay reached an agreement in principle on Christmas Day. That agreement — as well as any offer sheet and/or agreement in MLB — is contingent on a physical being passed. Unless it’s waived of course, which it wasn’t in this case.
    You’ll also note that the Mets have made no announcement of the deal, and don’t plan to before 11AM tomorrow. The reason: because there was no deal unless and until a physical was passed. Whether he was “signed” is an interesting intellectual question — there may have been ink put to paper of some kind — but there is no question that the Mets were not bound to him until the physical, and that’s what really matters. They could have walked away. Now they can’t.

    Bowden has tweeted three times… once about Bay, once about Holliday, and once about… Kevin Gregg and the Pirates.

    Okay, Craig, we got it. You think this was a bad signing and that the Mets are a haven for injured and overpaid ball players. Now, between now and the first spring game, there probably is not much more you can say. So, why not pass on running the same story for the 5th time when the press conference is held tomorrow and hold the re-run until there is actual baseball. There will be plenty more to second guess the Mets on between now and then.

    Feelin’ the love in the room, Craig?

  7. Andy L - Jan 4, 2010 at 2:46 PM

    I still love you, Craig.

    Me too, but not unconditionally. That sort of love I hold in reserve for tall, sultry, pneumatically engineered dark-haired bellydancers with big eyes, long legs and killer come-hither smiles.
