That headline is for you Fongy.
Back to the more important story here.Â It looks like according to the Fat Man (as I pointed out here:Market Comes Back to the Mets: Lackey, Bay and Holliday (Less Than Bay?) take that Matt) the Mets are ready to get into the big 3 sweepstakes and are starting their offer with Bay.Â No report yet on what that offer will be.Â What will be telling is if it is a good offer or not.Â If it is a low offer then it may just be a marketing ploy to get Lackey or Holliday to lessen their demands or in the eyes of the conspiracy theory minded Mets fans a way to please the crowd.
UPDATE: Ugh.Â Lets hope this part is not true:Â From Metsblog:
UPDATE: 3:35 Rumor is that the offer is 4/65, slightly more than the Redsox offer of 4/60.Â Could a 5th year option be in the works?
