Maybe Bay was tanking it in Pittsburgh, too.

Are you kidding me? :-°

He isn't that quick but he knows how to run the bases. Since the start of 2005 he has 46 steals in 50 attempts.

Ballpark effects have nothing to do with it.


FWIW, I'd rather see your numbers at the end of the year when he's played more than 8 games at Fenway. Too small of a sample size to make statements of that effect.


I agree that sample size is an issue, but thus far ballpark effects have not shown to be any help.

Man this is NOT a "look at my skills" kind of post, because I won the value but am not a touch screwed. But give or take a month ago, I was still trying to compete for saves (It could have gone either way, wish I held the course). I traded Beltran for Bay and Huston Street, figuring I was devaluing a keeper OF in favor of win now. Now, I totally had to punt saves three weeks from then, and to be honest, I'm still pretty pumped.

I mean, I am not going to get carried away, but he is a quality player. Although, it would have been interesting to see what Pitt could have done, that lineup before breakup was underrated with mclouth, the laroche boys, bay, doumit. Oh well, I'll take this.

Yes, mostly.

On the other hand, if it was asked of Manny then it should be asked of Bay.

I thought all that Manny was tanking stuff was really just sour grapes. I guess Pirate fans are just above all that drama queen stuff.

Not even close to a reasonable argument.

Like you are an objective POV with your RedSox avatar and sig.

Fair is fair.

The Manny accusations were stupid to begin with. Dude gives his all for 7+ years, helps break all kinds of bad mojo to win a WS, and you stab him in the back as he leaves down.

Stay classy, Red Sox fans.

stab him in the back? youre joking right? sox fans put up with his antics for a long time. this year he demanded to be traded, got in a fight with a staff member and with youk, was sitting out games with an imaginary injury...

so the sox fullfilled his wish and traded him. and that is stabbing him in the back? yeah dude, manny was totally innocent in this. he never said anything about wanting out of boston

You lost all credibility with the "gives his all" comment.

Not even going to bother with an counter-argument here...
