Jason Bay officially a Met
Now that Jason Bay has passed his physical, the Mets outfield for 2010 appears to be set with Bay, Beltran, and Francoeur. That's a better starting outfield than the Mets had at any point last season. If Reyes returns injury-free, the left side of the infield should also be strong with Wright and Reyes. Unfortunately, right now both the right side of the infield and the catching is below average. Neither Castillo nor Murphy is good enough and the catching, just as it was last season, is sub-par. Unfortunately, though its appears that Orlando Hudson wants to play for the Mets, Minaya isn't willing to consider him as long as Castillo is on the roster.
