Mets and Jason Bay "part ways"  Only bad part is Bay is taking $21mil with him.  How bad do you have to be if a team pays you $21mil not to play for them?  Only good part is that , different than an outright release,  the $21 mil will be deferred and stretched out over a number of years.  But also different is that Bay will be allowed to become a FA and steal money from another team.  Somebody will take a chance and sign him.  Bay is the second person I know from Canada that turns my stomach.

I'm also hearing that the money saved this year is fairly insignificant.  Mets paying most of $21 mil this year.
