In a report for Foxsports, Ken Rosenthal writes that Jason Bay has officially turned down the offer that was on the the table from the Red Sox. It was widely reported at the end of the season that the Sox had offered Bay a 4-year/$60 million contract. Last week the Mets trumped that slightly with a 4-year/$65 million offer.

It appears that the Red Sox aren’t willing to move from their original offer. Rosenthal notes that the Mariners and Angels are both rumored to have some level of interest in Bay as well. The Mets are now in a stronger bargaining position than ever. That’s good news for those of us that would like to see Bay come back to the Mets organization.
