I'm betting $50.00 (figuratively speaking, of course), that Jason Bay ends up on a team that plays in a small ballpark, and has a MONSTER comeback season.

It always seems to work that way, doesn't it?

He'd be smart signing with a team with a small park like Boston, Baltimore, Texas, Arizona, etc.

Does he really have to have a monster season or can we use sazmetrics to show that he's had a killer year in spite of a .175 batting average.

I don't know about a "monster" season, but I do predict that if he gets a full time job back somewhere he will put up better numbers than any of his Mets seasons.

Chances of ZomBay having a monster year elsewhere.....slim and none.
Chances of ZomBay ruining our year.....GREAT!!!

Ibanez. Everyone gets rejuvenated when they join the Yankees. Players rapidly decline after joining the Mets.

Whats the difference when he cant make contact half the time and other half he cant even hit it further than the infield.

Hence my point on the Green Monster. He stopped hitting period, Green Monster or not.

I dont mind if Bay has a monster season and if he does, it would be typical for another "former Met" to do good after leaving the Mets.
What will probably grind my gears next year, is the daily Bay updates posted by people who just want to rub it in.
"Hey I guess .280, 15Hrs and 50 RBIs, couldnt help us". Or "Bay hit another homerun last night" etc.

The Yanks will sign him to a 1 year deal to replace Swisher.

We'll be watching him hit a walk off in October.

Ibanez hit 19HRs for $1M while Aroid hit 18HRs for $20M (he was getting $30M but I think it went down to $20M this year) anyway how much more (than 19HRs) did they expect for only $1M?, even with the .240BA he was a bargain. Similar to Hairston with us this year.

LOL... I would not be surprised if he did.
And frankly, I would not mind. Bay is a class act, and even though he stunk-up-the-joint here, I wish him no ill will. I wish him the best.

honestly no, it really doesn't always work that way.

I can't remember the last time the Mets let an over the hill player go & then he refound his mojo with another club.

Trick bet..... Everyone knows that Monster is slang for Aids..... So if he stinks it up, like he been doing, all you can say is he having a season like a let term Aids patient and you would win the bet based on a technicality.

"You do know Ibznez hit .240 this year, right? If you'd asked a Yankee fan what they thought of Ibanez prior to that pinch-hit AB in the playoffs? 90% of them would have said "absolute trash.""

I do, but he had a few BIG pinch hits before season's end as well. I think one clinched the division. He got hot late when it mattered most.
