The Mets feel they are in play for Jason Bay. Ed Price of FanHouse thinks if should the Mets miss out on Bay, they will go for Matt Holliday.
However, their preference is for Bay. They have heavy competition though. The Angels also have an interest and it does not look like the Red Sox have given up either.
I would like to see Bay on the Mets. I would not even argue having Holliday. Fans need to remember that both are not the greatest defensively.
You have to take your pick. Do you want power or average? Bay would be a power hitter. Holliday would hit for a higher average.
So pick your poison. Who would you prefer? Bay or Holliday?
I would take power.
