When the Red Sox traded away Manny Ramirez, they received Jason Bay.
Bay reported to Boston from the Pittsburgh Pirates immediately and was in the Sox lineup the next day. He had a remarkable first few games with the ball club and, though he was only with Boston for two seasons, Bay has fond memories with the team.
Bay talked about them with NESN’s Jamie Erdahl before the Sox matched up against the Mariners on Tuesday night. He all that Bay had to say in the above video.

The Seattle Mariners enter the final few weeks before the trade deadline hopelessly out of playoff contention but in perhaps the best position to maximize value as sellers.
Make no mistake, this Mariners team is not going to make any noise in 2013 and its deep farm system of pitching prospects are still adjusting its way into major league uniforms, but Seattle could be the most relevant...
There have been more downs than ups this season, but the Seattle Mariners are on a definite up after their recent six-game road trip. Seattle faced two teams both ten games over .500, Texas and Cincinnati, and took both three-game series. While it’s true the Mariners still haven’t swept any team this season, a 4-2 road trip against that kind of competition is a step in the...
The Red Sox had quite the game Tuesday night, and it’s no coincidence that David Ortiz had a big game, too.
The Boston designated hitter was once again the power behind the Sox’ attack, going 4-for-5 with a homer run as Boston racked up 16 hits and five home runs on its way to its 11-8 win over the Mariners.
On top of the win, the night also marked several special occasions for...
The Boston Red Sox added needed depth to its bullpen calling up right-handers Steven Wright and Pedro Beato.
The Red Sox made the moves Wednesday before facing the Seattle Mariners. Boston optioned starter Allen Webster and reliever Alfredo Aceves to Triple-A Pawtucket to clear roster spots.
The decision to send out Webster leaves the Red Sox needing a starter for Sunday's...
The Seattle Mariners may soon have more power in the outfield to complement that of Raul Ibanez. Right fielder Michael Morse has steadily progressed from his quadriceps strain, and will soon prepare for a Minor League rehab assignment according to MLB.com's Greg Johns.
Morse, out since June 21, has resumed batting practice and light running this week. In fact, as Johns...
Before Monday night's game, Red Sox manager John Farrell stated that pitcher Andrew Miller will need foot surgery and is probably out for the rest of the season.
As reported by Jacob Thorpe of MLB.com,
"Miller left Saturday's game against the Angels with a left foot
injury. The loss of Miller further depletes Boston's ailing bullpen. The
Red Sox lost...
Two tough losses in Anaheim have put the Boston Red Sox (54-36) in a 1-2 hole to start the West Coast road trip. Typically, a series against the Seattle Mariners (39-49) is a relief for the Sox. But for a team struggling at the plate facing one of the game’s best pitchers (if not the best), tonight is not anticipated to be a strong night.
The Mariners managed to crush the ball early on and jump out to a lead, but the Boston bats got to Iwakuma and tallied five home runs en route to a game two victory.
Boston 11, Seattle 8
When: 10:10 PM ET, Tuesday, July 9, 2013

The Red Sox broke out and in a big way on Tuesday night, as many of their fans on the East Coast slept the night away.
Boston bounced back after dropping the first game in Seattle to pound the Mariners 11-8 in the second game of the series, a game that started after 10 p.m. in the East and ended up lasting 3 hours and 44 minutes.
Part of the reason the game took so long, of course...
Jon Lester was roughed for five runs and the Boston Red Sox bullpen allowed another six in an 11-4 to the Seattle Mariners on Monday night at Safeco Field in Seattle, WA.

For a second straight night the Red Sox offense was in sync and they pounded out 11 runs against the Mariners. Starting pitching was dominant, one of Doubronts best outings of the season and set the tone for the Sox all night long. Here are the 3 stars of the game:
Star 3: Shane Victorino
Victornio had a 2-4 night before being subbed out by JBJ for...
As the West Coast road trip continues into Seattle, the Red Sox will begin the series without star centerfielder and All-Star snub Jacoby Ellsbury.
Ellsbury will get the night off and Daniel Nava will take over to captain the outfield in Monday’s game against Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners. Nava –coming off a four-hit performance Saturday against the Angels– will...
Would you rather be the Boston Red Sox, losers of three in a row but maintaining a 3.5-game lead in the AL East? Or the New York Yankees, winners of six-of-eight yet still five games back?
That’s what I thought. Everybody calm down.
The Red Sox (54-37) are going through their toughest stretch of the season, having blown a four-run ninth-inning...
The beginning of the game was rough to watch and then the game continued to drag on, so most of Red Sox Nation missed the end of the game, but if you were one of the few that stayed up to watch the whole game you saw an offensive explosion by both teams. They combined for 19 runs and 29 hits. Here are the 3 stars of the game:
Star 3: Dustin Pedroia...
With the July 31 trade deadline sneaking up, Red Sox General Manager Ben Cherington is still looking into making some moves. Cherington has scouts out searching for relief pitchers, right-handed hitters, and possibly a starting pitcher, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
As of now, relief is top priority. The Sox are still looking into...
