Jason Bay Makes 2011 Debut Tonight

As the Mets continue to sit at the basement of the NL East, National League and MLB, the offense will hopefully get a jump start as Jason Bay will make his 2011 debut tonight, starting in left field. This marks the first time that Bay’s name will be penciled in the lineup since July of 2010. With nowhere to go but up, Bay could do just that for the Mets.

Obviously, 2010 was not what was expected of Bay, not by a long shot. In only 95 games played, Bay hit .268 with 6 homers and 47 RBIs, not exactly worth his 4-year $60 million contract he signed back in January of 2010. Now in 2011, a new year, the Mets need Bay to produce, in the worst way.

With the Mets off to a 5-13 start, they cannot get much worse. We can only hope that Bay’s presence will whip the Mets into shape and salvage the 2011 season before it is too late.
