Bay gets the OK

Word out of New York is that Jason Bay passed his physical this morning and now he is officially a member of the Mets.

That would seem to be the last nail in the coffin of the Mets interest in Matt Holliday, possibly greasing the skids for the free agent slugger to sign a new contract with the Cardinals.

Cardinals manager Tony La Russa posted on his Twitter account this weekend to say that the Redbirds will be making a big announcement soon. No word on if it will be Holliday related.
