Before I begin, I want to first clarify that I was happy when the Mets signed Jason Bay in the offseason. I would have preferred a similar type deal to the one that the Red Sox offered of two years with a team option, but I realized that the Mets had to overpay to get […]

But with the Mets it’s completely over the top and it always leads to lofty unrealistic expectations for the prospects […]
