08:16 AM ET 06.09 | Jason Bay understands the pressure to perform. The underachieving Mets left fielder has been around long enough to realize every manager has a breaking point. Bay knows he needs to start hitting -- or prepare for the possibility he will relinquish his everyday spot in the Mets' lineup. "That's the reality of the situation we're in," Bay told The Post. "I'm not going to sit here and tell you that is not an option. I'm pretty aware of what's going on." Bay finished 0 for 3 in the Mets' 7-6 loss to the Brewers, extending his hitless streak to 23 at-bats. He is batting .207 with two homers and 10 RBIs. The fact the Mets don't have a strong alternative in left field has made it easier for manager Terry Collins to keep Bay in the lineup.
