Jason Bay Reaches Deal with Mets

Jason Bay

We all knew Jason Bay was most likely never going to sign with the Red Sox, so the news that he signed elsewhere should not come as a shock to our system.

Mike Francesca of WFAN in New York reported earlier today that Jason Bay and the New York Mets have agreed to a four-year deal worth around $66 million with a vesting option for a fifth year. The deal is pending a physical and if everything checks out fine, then the Mets will make their official announcement of the signing next week.

Analysis

As compensation, the Red Sox will receive New York’s second round pick in the next draft along with a supplemental pick. Also interesting to note is that Bay rejected the Sox latest offer for four years and $60 million which Bay then tried to counter with a six-year deal for around $16-$18 million per year.

This deal will raise eyebrows and will have us all wondering why Jason Bay left Boston for just an additional $6 million.
