Jason Bay stinks

May 6, 2010


Jason Bay was 0 for 4 with two more K's on Wednesday

Entering the 2010 season, one of my lesser concerns was Jason Bay and his adaptation to New York City.  Based off what he did replacing Manny Ramirez in Boston, I had no reason to doubt that Bay would find his place in Queens and serve as a lethal threat out of the clean-up spot.   In 2009 for the Red Sox, Jason Bay belted 36 home runs and racked up 119 RBI’s while hitting .267 and swiping 13 bases.  Those stats alone were more than worthy of a $70 million contract.
