From Andy Martino of the New York Daily News comes word that Mets outfielder Jason Bay has been scratched from Sunday’s lineup against the Phillies due to a jammed right ring finger.

Bay suffered the injury while sliding head-first into a base in the second inning of Saturday’s 5-0 defeat of Philadelphia. Scott Hairston is filling in out in left field and batting fifth for the Mets on Sunday.

Bay, 33, is just 5-for-27 (.185) so far this season.

He posted a disappointing .245/.329/.374 slash line with 12 home runs and 57 RBI in 123 games last year.

    Looking over the past 35 years of the free agency era this signing is quickly turning into the worst free agent signing ever. Certainly the worst Mets deal….and the Wilpon led circus continues(cue the bad circus music)…

    the METS will realease BAY in may he’s. finished with the METS. He should tell the Mets that they don’t have to pay him for the remainder of his contract he didn’t perform like he should have

    Me thinks the Mets roster needs lessons on sliding.

    I’m a Phillies fan and hate the Mets yet I have for the last 4 years I may have been the only human in these 50 states to feel they were always on the cusp of being better than the horrific last place team everyone else assumes they are. I always felt they had a lot of talent that for whatever reason didn’t always come together and stay healthy at the same time. Yeah they’ve had their character issues here and there but I always felt they would be competitive, at the very least as the world trashed them. Here I am again and I still think they look pretty good. Neise, Santana, and Dickey could make a pretty good top 3 in the rotation and maybe that loser Pelfrey (he’s as much a punk as Josh Beckett in my book) throws in a few good starts here and there. They have a decent offense. I’m sure they will all disappoint yet again and I hope they do but I again think this years Mets team isn’t the disaster that everyone else thinks they are.
