    Default Canadian Jason Bay Signs with the Mets

    Would of loved to see him in a Jays uniform, but now that its official that we're rebuilding (finally) overloading our team payroll just wouldn't make any sense.

    The Baywatch is set to begin at Citi Field.

    Free agent Canadian slugger Jason Bay and the New York Mets have reached a preliminary agreement, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

    The person spoke on condition of anonymity because Bay must pass a physical for the deal to be completed. The three-time all-star is expected to sign a four-year contract for about US$66 million.

    Bay of Trail, B.C., set career highs with 36 home runs and 119 RBIs last season for Boston. The 31-year-old outfielder is a lifetime .280 hitter and has averaged 30 homers and 99 RBIs in his six full seasons in the majors.

    Bay fills a huge hole in left field for the Mets, who skidded to a 70-92 mark during an injury-plagued year. They especially needed a bopper after hitting a major league-low 95 homers in the first season at their spacious, new ballpark.

    The deal was first reported by WFAN.

    Rebuilding of the eternity, the curse of Robbie Alomar still reigns in the SkyDome, up yours Rogers, it's SKYDOME! Should of called it Rogers Field considering it plays football and baseball in fields. Those Mets will find another way to choke their playoff chances away, or Bay might break a bone due to Mets bad luck.

    Wow did they over-pay for Bay. Hes mediocre fielder and strikes out too much, plus with citi field having a long left field wall being pretty long, look for Bay HR numbers to decrease. Again the Mets go after the big names and not the player who would fit their system
