As the Mets continue to put the full court press on Jason Bay, I keep thinking, “if this is all they do they haven’t improved enough to win.” Maybe not even enough to contend.
Their offense will get better with the returns of Wright, Reyes and Beltran. Made stronger with Bay, But, their pitching is still four-deep in questions with the rotation and lacking depth in the bullpen.
They finished fourth without Bay. They can finish fourth with him if their pitching stays the same.
