Yep…. I can’t believe it either. I know it was his first time on the ballot but how the fuck did Jason Bay not get his ticket punched into Cooperstown tonight?
Unlike Mariano Rivera, Jason Bay played more than one inning in almost every game of his career. He has more National League rookie of the year trophies (1) than Edgar Martinez, Roy Halladay or Mike Mussina and is arguably one of the best Canadian athletes of all time… Classic baseball, failing to understand the importance of growing their game.
Jason Bay was a multi All Star and did something very few could do in his era, play at an above average level while wearing a Pirates uniform. He wasn’t flashy, he didn’t say much, he just played ball. He was an upgrade for Manny Ramirez for gods sake. GIVE THIS MAN A SHRINE.
