How are the New York Mets going to get rid of him? He's a complete nightmare and the sole reason why the team can't acquire a top-notch player this offseason. He's been one of the biggest busts in MLB history.
In fact, the entire Mets outfield was a bust last season. Other than Scott Hairston, who's a free agent, the trio of Bay, Lucas Duda, and Andres Torres was atrocious.
The Mets keep selling Duda, saying he'll perhaps replace Bay as the starting left fielder in 2013, but he can go too. He might have no value, but even if he has to go to the minors, he can't be on the opening day roster.
Everyone knows about the Mets' money issues. But if they can spend money on one player, it should be Michael Bourn. He can play center field in a park with a spacious outfield and give the Mets speed, something they had none of this season.
It's not all a bust for the Mets, though. Their infield is solid as they picked up the $16 million club option on David Wright today. Their starters are also good.
They need some bullpen help which is always a crapshoot.
