Sittin' On The Doc Of The Bay
Hello to you, my Constant Readers, on this still dark and very cold Saturday morning. I couldn't sleep...you've had one of those nights when you fall asleep and then WAKE UP and see by looking at the bedside clock that 20 minutes have elapsed. 20 MINUTES!!! Well, that happened to me multiple times last night and I finally got SICK of it. I shuffled out of bed at ten minutes before 4am, took my sugar and had a small breakfast and I'm now sitting here and typing to my blog friends. That's you, by the way. My subject of the day, although this post will be a short one, is what the Boston Red Sox should do, if anything, to reacquire left fielder Jason Bay.
I do not think that Bay will settle for anything less than a five year contract and the Sox would tend to lean towards a three year deal, like their right fielder, JD Drew. 14 or 15 milion bucks per year? John Henry's wallet can do it but does he want to? Ay, that's the question. Both Bay and Drew have comparable statistics. During Jason's career, only five outfielders have more RBIs. I'm going to leave this up to Theo and company. There are other capable outfielders out there who plan to become free agents in the next few days. I'm totally sure Theo and company will find someone to guard the Green Wall turf and put the ball in the glove and into the seats, be it Bay or someone else. I just know it. Rmember, Hermida will be a fourth outfielder. That's a fact.
Have a great weekend and thanks for popping in. If you have any thoughts on this or just anything, simply leave a comment and I'll answer you as best I can. Thanks.
