Jason Bay is not only a Pittsburgh Pirate, he’s from British Columbia, Canada, eh.
At yesterday’s All Star Game Home Run Derby, where players are representing their home countries more than their respective MLB teams, JayBaybee didn’t hit ONE SINGLE HOMERUN. Not a one. Zero. Not only does that suck, but it smarts even more because he was the only person there who didn’t hit ONE SINGLE HOMERUN.
The winner hit 24 homeruns in the first round alone.
So JayBaybee says in today’s Post-Gazette
It was a lot of fun, and I’m glad I had the chance to participate.
Yeah, I’m sure THAT was a big ball of hysterical fun watching ball after ball drive down the line instead of even a little bit UP in the air as required to hit ONE SINGLE HOMERUN.
Baybee also said that he asked the Pirates head trainer for advice on strategy and was told, “There is no strategy.”
Dude? I’m not a baseball expert, but seems to me there are some tips or pointers that would help a guy hit ONE SINGLE HOMERUN instead of publicly embarrasing himself and his country. And I’m just saying, maybe the guy that keeps you fit isn’t the one that you should be asking for hitting tips. Don’t you guys have like a BATTING COACH? But hey, if the Pirates are asking their trainers, their ballboys, and their mothers for hitting tips, could this be why we’re staring a losing season in the eyeballs?
