Mike Francessa has just said that the Mets will announce after the weekend after the physicals come back that the Mets will have signed Jason Bay.
Unless there is some issue with his physical he will join the Mets early next week. This offical annoucnement will be made early next week.
No word on length of contract. **** update As per Joel Sherman of the Post deal is for 4 years and 66M with a vesting option for the 5th year. There had been word that the Redsox's were concerned about Bay's shoulders so the physical might be a deal breaker. ****
Jon Heyman confirms the Mets and Bay have reached a deal. The Mets might have bumped up the per year amount .
Now at least there will be some interesting banter on Hot Stove on Mlb tonight.
