Epstein: Bay 'did outstanding job for us'
At a news conference to introduce outfielder Mike Cameron on Wednesday, Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein wouldn't officially close the door on Jason Bay's stay in Boston, but made it sound like Bay's return is unlikely.
"[The media] has done a great job of speculating, putting the pieces together this winter, so I'll let you continue to speculate. I don't want to say that the door is officially closed on one player out there that's a free agent. But Jason, obviously, in a year and a half here, did an outstanding job for us," Epstein said.
"That's a trade we would make again any day of the week. Whichever team does sign him, they're getting a quality person and a quality player."
