Mets Close Deal On Bay; Molina Next?

Pro Football NYCSenior Writer IDecember 29, 2009

Offseason Moves Coming This Week

According to sources the Mets will come to an agreement with free-agent outfielder Jason Bay early next week.  They are awaiting results from a physical examination before the deal is announced

Bay must have seen the market for his services dissipate over the past few weeks and decided Flushing was the best place to settle down.

Catcher Benji Molina is reportedly also on the Mets' radar. He is seeking a three-year deal and the Mets are offering two. It is believed that they will hammer out the differences and strike a deal.

Cubs' pitcher Carlos Zambrano could also be headed to the Mets. A trade, perhaps involving a third team,  to bring Zambrano to Flushing remains a possibility.

The trade could involve the Mets parting with 2B Luis Castillo, who the Cubs have shown some interest in.

After a month of inactivity, Citi Field could finally be afluster with movement.
