Hey Jason Bay,
I know you want a lot of money and a nice big contract, probably the last “big” contract of your career, but if you ever want to be welcome in New York City if you sign with the Mets, you better hurry up and put some ink on paper.
Just letting you know it’s a rough world out there for Mets fans. We’re reeling after three disappointing seasons and we just watched the Phillies and the Yankees win the last two World Series. Not fun.
Mets fans are getting antsy, though. The biggest move the team has made this offseason is signing Ryota Igarashi. Yeah, exactly.
Though it might be a good signing, it’s done nothing to appease fans.
They’re simply chomping at the bit to see their team improve on paper. You signing would quell this bubbling anger.
You’ll be welcome by most fans here in New York. Many fans want you here very badly. So just a suggestion: If you want to play here and not be booed mercilessly through your first 150 at bats, I would get your John Hancock down quick.
And then apologize to fans for making them wait. I know many are already quite angry.
Anyway, hope to see you in orange and blue fairly soon. (But hopefully not for five more years)
Oh, and work on your defense a bit, would you? Thanks.
