If Hunter Leaves, Bay May Come

Let’s face it, Jason Bay had a horrible year. After hitting 35 home-runs and driving in 109, Jason only put up a .247 21HR 84RBI line this year. Pretty bad timing as the Pirates named a new general manager duo of Neil Huntington and Bill Smith, almost guaranteeing that Bay will be dealt this offseason in order to replenish Pittsburgh’s minor-league system.

“The Bucco Blog” over at reports that the Twins might have quite a bit of interest in a Matt Garza for Jason Bay deal. Makes a lot of sense for the Twins, as Bay could be pretty adequate in center-field and is signed for a mere $5.75M next year.

Garza is only 24 years old and has already had a 5-7 season, compiling a 3.69 ERA in the process. He could fit in quite well with a rotation including Ian Snell, Zach Duke, Tom Gorzelanny, & Matt Morris.
