After the Mets' very unsuccessful season in 2009, former general manager Omar Minaya made the pursuit of a high-profiled free-agent left fielder his top priority. This ended with the Mets paying Jason Bay $66 million over four years to patrol left field.

So far, this has become one of the worst free-agent contracts given in Mets history. Bay has yet to eclipse 20 home runs and 80 RBI in a season as a Met. He was paid to hit home runs, drive in RBI and give David Wright better protection in the lineup. Instead, he has looked lost at the plate quite often, suffered a concussion that ended his 2010 season, and has endured the Citi Field boo birds.

Many of the more veteran Mets fans may have already begun to reminisce on other poor free agent signings that the Mets have made in their history.

With this being said, here are the 10 worst free agent signings in Mets history.
