According to an article by SI’s Jon Heyman, Omar Minaya meet with Bay’s agent and are thought to have offered a 5 year contract to bay (last year is option). Bay’s agent is twisting Minayas arm and asking for 6 years. Omar has also engaged in talks with Boras (cough…cough…ahole..cough) about Matt Holiday. Also the Mets are standing on their offer to Molina for 2/$10 but Molina is also standing his ground at 3/$20.
-I think the shock of Mondays blockbuster deal is wearing off and its back to business. Thanks to all the Mets bloggers and beat writers for calming the base down a bit to give Omar some time to work.
According to Buster Onley from ESPN, Mets are staying at 4 years for Bay and just monitoring Holiday…not actively involved. Also David Lennon from Newsday believes either way that the Bay/Holiday situation works out for the Mets, they will be grossly overpaying for them and may lose out on both.
-ESPN vs SI this morning lol, I dont know who is right but I am inclined to believe Jon in this one as im sure it will take a 5th year to lock up Bay and the Mets do not want to let him get away and deal with Boras backed into a corner. Stay tuned!
