A PERSON familiar with the deal told the Associated Press that free-agent outfielder Jason Bay reached a 1-year contract with the Seattle Mariners. Bay, 34, is hoping to resurrect his career with the Mariners after three disappointing and injury-plagued seasons with the New York Mets. Last month, Bay and the Mets agreed to terminate his contract with 1 guaranteed year remaining on his $66 million, 4-year contract. The agreement let the Mets spread out the $21 million they still owed him. Bay hit .165 with eight home runs and 20 RBI last season.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. - Jason Bay and the New York Mets ended their unproductive relationship after three miserable seasons when they agreed Wednesday to terminate the outfielder's contract with one guaranteed season remaining. The deal makes the 34-year-old a free agent and allows the team to spread out the remaining $21 million it owes him. After signing a $66 million, four-year deal before the 2010 season, the three-time all-star hit .234 in three injury-plagued seasons with 26 home runs and 124 RBIs, including a .165 average with eight homers and 20 RBIs this year.

  Maybe they hoped nobody would notice In the off-season, while nobody was watching, it seems the Pittsburgh Pirates extended the contracts of manager John Russell and general manager Neal Huntington for the 2011 season without making a public announcement. (Don't know why they bothered - nobody's watching the Bucs during the season, either.) The Pirates were coming off a 99-loss season in 2009 and, amid slumping ticket sales, apparently felt announcing the winter deals might further lessen enthusiasm for this season.

Brian Giles, one of the NL's most productive players for five seasons, was dealt yesterday to the San Diego Padres in a long-rumored trade that further depletes the talent-thin Pittsburgh Pirates. In an uncommon late-season deal involving a name player going from one non-contender to another, the Pirates got promising lefthanded starter Oliver Perez, minor-league outfielder Jason Bay and a player to be named. After acquiring Giles, the last-place Padres sent all-star outfielder Rondell White to the Kansas City Royals for two minor-league pitchers.

Jason Bay is giving the Pittsburgh Pirates a much-needed dash of hope as they try to avoid their 12th consecutive losing season. Bay, a 25-year-old outfielder, twice has had eight RBIs in a game and is making a push to become the first Pirates player to win the NL rookie of year. He had nine RBIs as Pittsburgh swept a doubleheader from the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. He had a sacrifice fly in an 8-1 opening victory, then hit three two-run doubles and a two-run homer in a 13-2 decision in the second game.

After 2 months of trying, the Pittsburgh Pirates finally landed a deal for Atlanta power hitter Adam LaRoche yesterday when they agreed to acquire the first baseman for lefthanded reliever Mike Gonzalez and another player. The t'rade also involves two minor leaguers and will be announced after physicals are completed, according to a baseball official familiar with the negotiations who requested anonymity because the deal was still being finalized. The Braves also get shortstop prospect Brent Lillibridge, while the Pirates will receive outfielder Jamie Romak.

Given a chance to move 10 games over .500 for the first time in 15 years, the Milwaukee Brewers fell short. Jose Bautista and Ronny Paulino hit consecutive home runs in a four-run seventh inning, and visiting Pittsburgh rallied for a 4-2 win last night that stopped the Brewers' four-game winning streak. Milwaukee (18-10), which leads that NL Central, has not been 10 games over .500 since finishing the 1992 season 92-70. That also was the last time the Brewers finished with a winning record.

RICK ANKIEL and the Houston Astros made an impressive debut in the American League, trouncing the visiting Texas Rangers, 8-2, Sunday night in the major league opener and giving Bo Porter a win in his first game as manager. Ankiel launched a pinch-hit three-run shot for the first homer this season, Bud Norris pitched well for the win and Erik Bedard threw 3 1/3 scoreless innings for his first career save. Having switched from the National League to the AL in the offseason, the Astros earned their first Opening Day victory since 2006 and the 4,000th regular-season win in franchise history.

NEW YORK - The No. 4 and No. 5 hitters are batting a combined 4 for 39 (.102). The standout No. 3 hitter is nursing a finger injury. And the Phillies thought they had problems? The New York Mets, the consensus pick to finish fifth in the five-team National League East, will visit Citizens Bank Park on Friday for a weekend series with the Phillies. Still, the Phillies face a team that started on fire by winning its first four games, only to drop the next two in more recent Mets-like fashion, scoring a total of two runs in the two losses.

NEW YORK - Neil Walker hit a two-run single in the eighth inning off a game and gritty R.A. Dickey to help the Pittsburgh Pirates rally past the New York Mets, 5-1, on Tuesday night. Josh Harrison stroked a tying single with two outs in the eighth to cap a successful major-league debut and Pittsburgh got another fine outing from a starting pitcher. This time it was James McDonald, who gave up his only run on an infield dribbler. McDonald allowed five hits in six innings against New York's depleted lineup before Evan Meek (1-1)

Houston Astros owner Drayton McLane says he's retained the New York investment firm Allen and Company to help him sell the team he purchased in November 1992 for about $117 million, a move first reported by KRIV-TV. Steve Greenberg, the son of Hall of Fame slugger Hank Greenberg, is the firm's managing director. Greenberg said McLane has not settled on an asking price, nor does he have a specific buyer in mind. In August, an investment group led by former Astros pitcher Nolan Ryan purchased the Texas Rangers through an unusual bankruptcy auction for $593 million.

Charles Dickens wasn't referring to Pennsylvania's two big-league baseball teams when he wrote his famous opening to A Tale of Two Cities, but the words seem to fit. These are the best of times for Philadelphia baseball. The Phillies are defending World Series champions. They routinely play in front of sellout crowds - 47 entering last night - and are one of three clubs (joining the Dodgers and Yankees) to average more than 44,000 a game. They are in first place in the National League East and have their compass pointed at a third straight postseason berth.
