UPDATE: OK, maybe the Mets aren’t “close” on Bay
UPDATE: OK, people are now saying that the Lupica Twitter page is fake. This would crush my dreams, because the one thing I’ve always wanted was instant access to Mike Lupica’s opinions.
3:54 P.M. Mike Lupica tweets -- a phrase I never thought I’d say -- that the Mets are “close” with Jason Bay and that they may go as long as six years with him.
Remember this morning when I said that Omar was getting ready to overpay someone? This is what I meant. And that was when they were only willing to go five years.
