Red Sox GM Theo Epstein stopped short of saying that outfielder Jason Bay's tenure in Boston is over, but the team architect did refer to Bay's time as a Red Sox in the past tense when discussing the free agent.
“I don’t want to say the door is completely closed on any one player out there," said Epstein. "But Jason, obviously, in his year and a half here did an outstanding job for us. That’s a trade that we would make again any day of the week. Whatever team does sign him is getting a quality person and a quality player. We feel like we landed a quality person and a quality player here today ourselves [in Mike Cameron].”
Bay's representative, Joe Urbon, rejected the Red Sox' most recent offer late last week. At that time, the Sox moved on and made the decision to pursue pitcher John Lackey and Cameron, an outfielder who will require fewer years and dollars than Bay will command.
