When Jason Bay collided into the left field fence in Los Angeles on July 23, I described it as a potential season-changing moment. Not for the Mets, necessarily, but that Bay would finally be the elite run producer we all know he is capable of being. Of course, I said that not knowing he would eventually suffer from concussion symptoms, but if I had the chance to meet “12 days ago me,” I’d probably punch that optimistic sucker right in the gut.
And now this. A team official tells Anthony DiComo of MLB.com that Bay is “not close” to coming off the disabled list and is unlikely to be activated when he is eligible next Tuesday.
Bay told Mets trainer Ray Ramirez that he is feeling “a little better,” however he has yet to begin baseball activities and the club has no indication of when he will actually do so. You know what that means? More Francoeur for everyone!
As for Bay, it’s pretty sad when the most entertaining thing to come out of his first season in Queens is his inclusion in a rap “song” by Ron Artest.
