I'd go with the stump grinder, lot of digging otherwise. Might have to top up the soil when that lot's gone.
I had one removed last year. A guy came with a stump grinder, but after he had gone I had to dig out lateral roots with a mattock and pruning saw. bays can produce suckers so I didn't want to take any chances. I then sowed grass seed (it was mid August) and within 6 weeks it was all greened over. The best time to resow is mid August, or right now. If you leave it till May it could be too hot for good germination.
