Jason Bay is coming to life

Jason Bay

It’s hard to remember a free agent signing that led to so much buyer’s remorse so soon as Jason Bay‘s has. But maybe, just maybe, Bay will be able to change some minds.

He’s off to a good start with that, hitting two homers and driving in four last night in Los Angeles. Overall he has an eight-game hitting streak in which he’s hitting .366 and in which he has driven in 12 runs.  The last couple days worth of hotness has been well-timed too, coming with Jose Reyes out of the lineup and allowing the Mets to keep their mojo working.

So: Jason Bay, dead man surprisingly walking. And maybe not so dead after all.

    Jason Bay is a Met… so, by definition… he’s a loser. He should have stayed a Pirate!

    Ha… nothing like insinuating being a Pirate is better than being a Met!

        I’m insulted… please don’t call me bicepts again.

      He had no control over staying a Pirate. They traded him…now, he should have stayed in Boston. That park was tailor made for him.

    Now, if only his zombie contagion would spread to Dan Uggla.

      Maybe it already has, in that Case Uggla should start hitting sometime in 2013

    You think it led to buyer’s remorse faster than Lackey or K-Rod did? Or even Carl Pavano with the Yanks? I think he’s been kind of overlooked because the Mets haven’t really been in contention after May since he’s signed.
