Jason Bay Hot in New York Mets' Three Spot

Double G Sports@DoubleGSportsCorrespondent IMay 24, 2010

Back on Sunday, May 16, New York Mets manager Jerry Manuel once again moved around his lineup a little bit.

This time, Manuel slotted his left fielder, Jason Bay, into the No. 3 spot.

This move has turned out to be a good one so far.

Bay had been hitting fourth or fifth for most of the year, and his power numbers remained much lower than expected. Since being moved to the three spot, Bay has begun to heat up.

Bay has now played in seven games since the move to the three spot in the Mets lineup. In those seven games, the left fielder is batting exactly .500. He has 13 hits in 26 at-bats from his new lineup position.
