Bay Discusses Red Sox Contract

Jason Bay is not coming back for 2010, we know that, but he might have. He did not do this because of that fateful physical that he took that showed bad signs in his shoulders and knees. The Red Sox were telling Bay to have surgery when he "wasn't hurt" according to Bay. Jason Bay said, "I was shocked, to say the least, that I was being told to have knee surgery to get the contract, particularly because I wasn't hurt. By June, however, they did have a contract set up for Bay at $60 million over 4 years, an average of $15 million a year. After that, they set up a contract that was set up a new offer, still for 4 years, but with 2 more if he could stay health, still for $15 million a year. Then at the Winter Meetings in Indianapolis, they set up a new contract for Bay, this one with three years guaranteed, with an option for a fourth year, depending on his health. Eventually, Bay signed with the Mets for $66 million but that's OK. Go Sox, all the way!!!!!!
