As you might expect, there wasn’t much Yankees talk at Citi Field today. There was quite a bit of Red Sox talk, some surprisingly nice things were said about the Pirates organization and Jason Bay argued against the ideas that 1. He never wanted to play for the Mets, and 2. He’s been nursing a shoulder injury.
Bay said he went into the offseason with a list of teams in mind, teams that might need a left fielder and would be in a position to sign him. The Yankees were not on that list.
“I didn’t really see them having a hole,” Bay said. “They moved some guys, and I just kind of assumed Damon was going to be back. I just never really gave it a lot of thought to be honest.”
