Clubhouse Confidential On Bay’s Struggles

It’s Jason Bay Day on MMO. Okay, just kidding, but check out this video from MLB Network’s Clubhouse Confidential.

Host Brian Kenny does a nice job pointing out some revealing stats on Bay.

  • From 2004-2009, Bay posted a .280/.375/.519 slash.
  • From 2010-2011, Bay posted a .251/.337/.386 slash. Look at that drop in slugging percentage!
  • His ground-ball rate has risen from 31% to 43%, definitely not a good sign for hitters.
  • Citi Field has not hurt his offense, he’s been a significantly better hitter at home than on the road.

Kenny points out that Bay may have stopped pulling the ball because of Citi Field which has impacted him negatively.
