Consider this fascinating change-of-scenery exchange that the Miami Marlins and New York Mets kicked around, according to major league sources:
Outfielder Jason Bay to the Marlins for reliever Heath Bell and catcher John Buck.
The deal never was close, sources said. But it would have enabled both clubs to purge players who are flopping miserably this season.
The money almost would have matched up, too — Bell and Buck are owed a few million more than Bay through the length of their contracts (Bell’s deal expires after 2014, Buck’s and Bay’s after 2013).
Fascinating must mean “crappy.”
