Traded or demoted ?? Every Met fan is disgusted watching him come up to the plate and batting 6th,the man hopes for a bb and swings at pitches in the dirt two feet from the dirt. He really needs to go Met fans are fed up.
I think he's dumped after the season. The 2013 salary is a sunk cost, but I think they'll work out some sort of buy-out for the 2014 option (which the Mets weren't going to pick up anyway).
Nice guy, but he's toast. It would be best for everyone to part ways.
Certainly Ron Darling alluded to "decision time" in terms of Bay's status by the end of this road trip...though it's more likely he'll simply be benched, despite the fact that will basically cost us a roster spot. No one would want him in a trade, and I'm not sure the FO has the guts to just dump the contract.
With Santana coming back, something has to give roster-wise...
>> Despite the large contract, I can't see him on the Mets next year. He's been too horrible. Surely, even the Wilpons can see this is a hopeless situation with him?
One can only hope. The Mets did dump Perez and Castillo and took on their salaries. As far as a trade goes you wouldn't get anything much back except another bad contract. To complicate a trading him further Bay has a full no trade clause. Most likely he will take advantage of any opportunity that comes his way to get out of NY. One never knows what someone will do in a given situation.
