Apparently, $190 million doesn’t buy what it used to 🙂

Did you get to see that game today? It was like three or four games in one, like watching an episode of 24. I was exhausted. . .

Yeah, I watched all 17, uh I mean 8.5 innings! And I’ll be watching again tonight too.

We are sitting here whooping and laughing and playing Ellsbury’s straight steal home OVER and OVER — you can’t believe what you’re seeing even as you’re seeing it! 😀

Oh, Ellsbury’s up again and getting a Standing O. Unbelievable.

. . . nobody had a better view of the play than Jason Bay, the Boston left fielder who was in the on-deck circle.

“Obviously, it was the last thing you ever expected,” said Bay. “All of a sudden, you have Ells, who flies, and he takes off and everything just kind of happened at once. I’m thinking, ‘Geez, J.D., don’t swing.’ Boom, he kind of slid in. It’s almost more electrifying than a grand slam.”

Quite simply, the steal of home is — at least in the fashion Ellsbury did it — one of the rarest feats in baseball.

“I’ve never seen anyone attempt it, let alone somebody actually do it,” said Bay. “That was actually one of the coolest things of the night for me, and I was on deck for that, so I got a really good view of it. That was something I won’t forget.”

. . .It was a surreal sequence for Ellsbury. . .
“Guys were fired up,” Ellsbury said. “That usually happens when I steal second, but nothing like stealing home. It was pretty exciting for me when I was running down the line from third to home. Everything felt like it was happening in slow motion. That’s probably another reason I tripped up a little bit — I was fired up.”

Bay came through again last night. That Cleveland win was all on his bat. 🙂

The only steal of home I’d seen before that was Jackie Robinson in black and white hightlight films.

That wasn’t a pun, was it? 😉

From Babes Love Baseball (which gave Snook a little link love!) —

Welcome to the Jason Bay show. Their last series, in sweeping fashion against the New York Yankees, was highlighted by a two-out, two-run homer in the ninth off Mariano Rivera this weekend. Over his last four games, the outfielder has nine hits with two home runs and nine RBIs. Nice work.

Bay’s dad sounds like COD as a dad. 🙂

Very cool, he could’ve unschooled — maybe he almost did?

. . .Dave Bay has worked at the same smelter in Trail for his whole professional life — “since the day he graduated from high school,” according to Jason.

“When you work for a company, you don’t get a lot of days off,” said Jason Bay. “We had summer tournaments and a lot of them were on the weekends; we had practices and all these things he had to organize. At the time, you don’t really think much of it, but looking back, even though a lot of people have done it, it was a pretty big sacrifice.

“He kind of went the extra mile and was like, ‘All my free time is going to be devoted to this.’ I would like to think that from him, I got that stick-to-it-iveness. The hard working part, I think I got from him.”

Dave Bay never over-coached his son, and even though Jason is now one of the best hitters in the American League, his dad doesn’t stay awake dissecting the nuances of his swing. “
