Bay Inspires New Hitting Terminology

by

I wish I could get out of this Bay.

In honor of Jason Bay’s 25th (not a joke), 0-fer…..

Raking

Definition:  When a hitter is performing extremely well at the plate.  It is common for a player that is raking to go 3 for 4 or 4 for 4 during contests when he is in this state.

Also see:  on fire, hot

Back Of His Baseball Card

Definition:  When a hitter is performing as expected.  This can range depending on a player’s ability.

Scuffling

Definition:  When a player has been hitting poorly for a very small period of time.

Also see:  mini slump

Slumping

Definition:  When a player has been hitting poorly for an extended period of time.  This can last a few weeks and sometimes for an entire month.

Baying

Definition:  When a player has been in a slump for over a season for no apparent reason (such as being too old, or injured).

Due to the fact this is a new term, I will use it in a couple of sentences for you.

1.  Larry is Baying.

2.  I haven’t witnessed a Bay like this from a player in quite some time.

3.  I’ve never seen a Bay like this as long as I’ve watched the game of baseball.  Is this guy ever going to hit again?  I don’t get it.

Clearly Bay is working hard and is carrying himself with absolute professionalism.  I respect that.

However, I have given up on Jason Bay returning to form as a New York Met.  I would love to see him break out of it, believe me.  We are no longer dealing with a small sample size so it is no longer inevitable that he will shake out of this.

    Perfect definition, and though, as you said he’s trying and being the ultimate professional, the only way for him to now shake this moniker is to prove us wrong…

    [...] today’s game the mark of Jason Bay finally breaking out of his bay? (This question was more for you, because I have already trained myself not to think about it any [...]
