Don’t get your hopes up

So despite the fact that the Red Sox just lost to the Pirates in the 9th inning, and the Sox blew through nine different pitchers, there is some silver lining to this cloud. It gave us time to catch up with Jason Bay who had the day off.

Now for those of you who don’t remember, Jason Bay was one of the players the Sox got from the Pirates at the end of last year while the Pirates got some other players. Basically, when it comes down to the two teams, the Red Sox traded Brandon Moss for Jason Bay. Still at a loss for words, but I digress.

Bay had the day off today, and got to watch the game from the dugout between his current championship calibur team and his former team who, let’s say, are not.

Anyways, this is what Jason had to say about his former team:

Bay cautioned Pirates fans against assuming that any transformation will be an overnight one. He has seen that promise made and not realized before, and he knows that patience is a must.

“I think they have the right ideas,” Bay said of the management team that took over the Pirates before the 2008 season. “They’re a very competitive team. I think in the next few years, they are probably going to turn a corner.”

Now if that isn’t a pinpoint specific prediction, then I don’t know what is. And seriously Pirates fans, you guys need some patience. Nothing good happens overnight.

    Patience, eh?

    I was 8 years old the last time my Buccos had a winning season. I don’t want much. Just 82 wins once every 5 years or so. Is that too much to ask?

    And seriously, what Pirate fan has ever had expectations?
