Congrats Bay and Wake!

It’s been two great days for two of my favorite Red Sox players.

Jason Bay has done more than replace Manny since our acquisition of him last year. His hustle and determination are admired by Sox Nation and his attitude towards playing is always great. I am happy to have Bay as a member of the Red Sox, and now, as an American citizen on July 2. Congrats Jason!

Yesterday was also a milestone for a Sox player, Tim Wakefield. Wake made his 383rd start for the Red Sox, and passed Roger Clemens on the Red Sox list for this category. He had a tough outing last night against the Mariners, but reaching this milestone is still great. Wakefield has been with the team for 14 years and counting, and I know that Red Sox Nation is grateful for his commitment to the team. Congrats Tim!

Happy 4th of July to everyone as well!
