New Year's Eve Applesauce - More Bay reactions, 2009 Met defense, Aroldis Chapman update

Phew, just a few more hours left in the decade. Not the best decade in Mets' history, but it could have been A LOT worse.

Meet the Mets

More reactions to the Jason Bay signing. Jeff Pearlman says it's going to be a huge bust a la George Foster. Jeff Passan criticizes the signing because the Mets still are too cheap in the minor league draft. Ted Berg responds to this criticism. Pat Gallen has a Philadelphia angle on the signing, saying that Bay will suffer Citi Field's wrath.

Just to add some nice thoughts to your morning: Jason Bay's physical is no sure thing.

Patrick Flood takes on the "myth" that the 2009 Mets defense was bad.
