There is no reason for there to be any ill feelings toward Bay. The guy busted his butt every day he was here. The results were not there, but I can never trash a guy that way if he's at least giving 100% effort.
These last three years were as hard on Jason, ad it was on fans and Mets management. For a true professional like that, collecting those game checks didn't apease his anguish over being a failure here. I wish him well and hope he bounces back, at least to some degree.
As Ricco and Bay said, I think this was a very good idea that works for both sides, and resolves what wasa very distastely situation. Both sides can move on now.
Well done by Sandy. Gives a little more payroll breathing room over the next couple of years. Plus it takes some of the stink of death off the team.... Bay is a great guy, but having him on the team as a failure, was like having a black cloud following us around.
" I'd have loved to have seen him dumped unceremoniously, but "
What does that MEAN, specifically?
I'm glad that they spread the cost over a few years so that he's not quite the albatross he was. MAYBE with that payroll flexibility, they can keep Wright, or at least start building the team.
Yeah, I know the results weren't there... which is why I wrote the results weren't there and it was best he move on.
Comparing him to ARod is just absurd.
As for being on someone's most hated list... I feel bad for someone with that warped perceptive on life. I have better things to do than expend energy hating a guy for not hitting a baseball 3 times out of each 10 at-bats.
"even if he's the nicest guy to ever put on a uni, he'll be on most Met fans top 10 hated list.... I know he's on mine!!! "
LOL wow. I bet you're a real fun person to be around.
