WFAN radio's Mike Francesa is reporting that the Mets will announce the signing of free-agent outfielder Jason Bay early next week, pending the outcome of a physical. The deal is expected to be four years, $66 million, according to the New York Post. The deal will also include a vesting option for a fifth season. Beerleaguer: The Mets will be dangerous, but only if all of their key components can rebound. It's a big 'if.' Bay isn't a difference maker in and of himself.
