The Mets and Jason Bay have agreed to part ways.
“Jason has a tremendous work ethic. There was never any question about it,” Sandy Alderson said in a statement. “Unfortunately, the results weren’t there and we are in a results-oriented business. We thank Jason for his efforts and wish him well.”
Of course, the Mets will have to pay Bay’s full 2013 salary, but this is the right move. Time to make room for the future on the field, even if room is not cleared on the ledger.
