Jason Bay Is Bad At Defense And Also At Not Hurting Himself

Jason Bay has never been known for his glove (or hasn't he?), and in recent years he hasn't been known for his bat. So maybe that's why he gave 110 percent last night in trying to track down a fly ball off the bat of Gregor Blanco. A valiant effort, and a ton of glove on the ball, but all Bay has to show for his troubles is a fractured rib. Bay was placed on the 15-day DL today after undergoing an MRI this morning.

My favorite line comes from this ESPNNewYork story, which might be missing a word, and then again might not:

Bay did a full face plant, although he was not aware.
