While living in New York City for almost 19 years, I could probably count the number of times I went to Shea Stadium on both hands (and maybe a couple of toes). And like Josh, I always enjoyed myself there -- especially on weekday afternoon games.
Steven Krasner (ProJo), on Jason Bay's first home run as a Red Sock:
He simply dropped the bat and started running in a nice professional trot around the bases. Bay didn't jettison his bat, stand at home plate and watch the ball's majestic flight. He didn't ... point to the sky ... It was refreshing to see.Why is Krasner using Bay's homer to criticize David Ortiz?
Paul SF asks: "Who is Jason Bay?" though from the post, the question should probably be "How Well Does Jason Bay Hit In Every Conceivable Situation?"
In New York, the stache is dead.
