Bay sits tonight vs. Braves; lineup behind Dickey.

Maybe a night off is what Jason Bay needs. It couldn’t hurt. Nothing else seems to work. Frankly, I don’t know if anything will.

I keep hearing on the talk shows and reading the other blogs how the Mets should trade him. Sure would nice, but with that contract he’ll be impossible to move.

Let’s face it, Bay is busting out. He’s been dropped to sixth in the order, and manager Terry Collins said that’s where he’ll stay until he starts hitting.

Here’s tonight’s lineup against Atlanta:

Jose Reyes, SS

Justin Turner, 3B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Daniel Murphy, 1B

Angel Pagan, CF

Ronny Paulino, C

Jason Pridie, LF

Ruben Tejada, 2B

RA Dickey, RP

Bay dropped in batting order.

I wonder what took Terry Collins so long, but he finally dropped Jason Bay in the batting order, from fourth to sixth.

Bay entered the season as one of the Mets’ biggest questions, but has not produced and waiting for him to turn it on doesn’t seem like it is going to happen.

Here’s tonight’s lineup against the Braves:

Jose Reyes, SS

Justin Turner, 3B

Carlos Beltran, RF

Daniel Murphy, 1B

Angel Pagan, CF

Jason Bay, LF

Josh Thole, C

Ruben Tejada, 2B

Dillon Gee, RP
