INDIAN WELLS, Calif. (AP) - The New York Mets and Jason Bay have agreed to terminate their contract a year early and make the outfielder a free agent.
The 34-year-old Bay was a major disappointment in New York after signing a $65 million, four-year deal. The former All-Star hit .234 in three seasons with 26 homers and 124 RBIs, including a .165 average with eight homers and 20 RBIs this year.
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson says ``the results weren't there and we are in a results-oriented business.''
Bay was owed $16 million for next season and a $3 million buyout of a 2014 option.
