Bay Rejects Sox

The Red Sox have been sticking beside their 4 year, $60 million offer to Jason Bay. Apparently, other teams have been making better offers (or it could be the old Scott Boras trick where he makes the fake offer). The Mets, on one hand, gave Bay a 4 year, $65 million offer, but Bay wants a 5 year deal, reportedly. Bay has insinuated that he does not want to play for the Mets, in their cavernous Citi Field. A mystery team, however, has given Bay a five-year contract, this could be the Boras trick, however. The other suitors for Bay have been the Angels and Mariners, but I haven't heard too much about them. The Angels definitely have the salary room, as they lost expensive free agents John Lackey and Chone Figgins. The Mariners are trying to build on a team that has been working hard to get their team better with several powerhouse acquisitions over the offseason. Bay has apparently rejected the Red Sox' offer. Go Sox, all the way!!!!!
