Still hoping Matt Holliday doesn’t re-sign with St. Louis, but Jason Bay’s new 4-year deal with the Mets heavily increases the odds Holliday remains a Redbird. And that’s trouble for the Cubs considering Holliday and Pujols combined for 60 HR and 190 RBI last year.
Little surprised Bay and Boston couldn’t come to terms on a new deal. Bay was a good fit for the Red Sox last year, despite what anyone makes of his defense. And when you put up offensive numbers like he does, certain flaws can be overlooked, as was the case in Boston with Manny. Bay, of course, is no Manny at the dish, but he’s no Manny in left field, either…he’s far better, and less of a headache.
