Bay Heading Out?

From mlb.com:

Amid a report from FOXSports.com that Bay had rejected Boston’s latest offer, Joe Urbon, the left fielder’s lead representative, did not dispute that his client could be slipping away from the Sox.

“I’m just saying that the initial offers we’ve received from other clubs are just much more attractive to Jason than the last offer we received from the Red Sox,” Urbon said in a phone interview with MLB.com.

This could end up being a good thing for the Sox.

  • Depends on who replaces his .921 OPS, NIck. Though I continually compared him to Jay Buhner last year, and though I feel no attachment to Bay at all sentimentally, if the Sox don’t want to be that 87 win team that Tony Massarotti described, they will need to find production somewhere (though Mazz’ 87 win scenario involved a lineup WITH Bay or Holliday).
    I can’t see the Sox spending $100M+ on Matt Holliday (I could be wrong). So who is Bay replaced with? Cameron? A trade acquisition? Nobody?
    Wait, what about Johnny DAMON!??!?!

    i mean, if you’re going to consider bringing back a former player [damon] and all, leave no stone unturned…i guess you’re joking, as am i, but i’m surprised when i hear damon’s name come up at all in reference to making a return to the sox…i thought he was washed up 4 years ago when he left to go to ny…certainly not worth the moneyyears he was asking for then, and probably not worth the money/years he’s likely asking for now…

  • Wouldn’t Damon’s swing be a terrible fit for Fenway Park?

  • Please don’t mistake my naming Damon for my advocacy of Damon’s return. I think it would be a terrible move, and I think it won’t happen under any circumstance.

  • i know sf…we were both just kidding…note my ludicrous suggestion of an alternative…i have seen it [damon to sox] mentioned in passing in other venues, but not in a “to be taken seriously” way…probably more posturing by his agent…
