The Mets are 6-0 since Jason Bay was activated from the disabled list. Yet Bay, who is now hitting .391 after going 2-for-4 with a run scored Wednesday, is not exactly taking a bow.

“You’d have to get a perspective from someone that is not me,” Bay said. “And I’d really hope they’d say it was not me. I’ve told you guys before: In talking to Terry [Collins] and Sandy [Alderson] when I got here, they said, ‘Look, we’re not expecting you to be the guy to carry the team.’ What it really does, and it made a lot of sense — and, of course, Angel [Pagan] went down the same game or whatever — but it kind of puts guys in roles they envisioned rather than mixing and missing that.”

…What he has been bringing to the team is a much-needed bat and protection around the lineup for Wright and Beltran. Notice how those two have been hitting better with him in the lineup. Wright is hitting .304 with 3 home runs and 5 walks since the return. Also Bay is a savvy veteran who knows his position and role on the team. They don’t pay these guys the big bucks for no reason. Let’s see if the Mets get #7 tonight…
