Manny who?

The newest member of Red Sox Nation, Jason Bay, just set up the winning run with a Wall scraping triple in the bottom of the 12th. Bay scored on Jed Lowrie's infield hit and the Sox get the first win of the Manny being Manny Somewhere Else Era, 2-1.

It was a great (and badly needed) win, and a good way to wash the taste of the events of the last week out of our collective mouths. Maybe this is the start of something exciting here.

Best thing about Bay: despite the fact that he grew up in British Columbia, his dad is a huge Red Sox fan. To this day, there are posters of Yaz and Jim Rice in the Bay basement. Sounds like a guy who was born to be here!
