Sinus infection keeps Bay on the bench
NEW YORK -- After a cameo appearance against the Phillies this past weekend, outfielder Jason Bay sat out a second straight game on Monday with a sinus infection that follows flu-like symptoms he experienced for more than a week.

Bay, who has taken just one at-bat since Sept. 18, visited a doctor earlier on Monday and received new medication.

"Hopefully, it will help clean this up a little bit," manager Terry Collins said. "But he's still pretty sick."

Several Mets have been dealing with flu-like symptoms throughout September, including reliever Tim Byrdak, who has managed to pitch through his own illness.
