Collins: Bay likely to No. 2 soon
May, 18, 2011
By Adam Rubin | ESPNNewYork.com
Collins only slightly hedged because he had yet to broach the topic with Bay.
Bay has started only two games in his career in the No. 2 hole -- Oct. 3, 2009 with the Boston Red Sox, and then July 16 of last season with the Mets against San Francisco. (The Mets were nonetheless shut out for the second straight game, 1-0 by Barry Zito.)
Bay is hitting .129 (4-for-31) in his past nine starts.
"We're going to try something," Collins said. "I've got to address it with Jason. We've got to get him some protection. There's no question about it."
