Old approach pays off for Bay
PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Frustrated with previous tweaks to his batting stance, Jason Bay began moving his hands again earlier this week with promising results. So he decided to scrap his new stance altogether, reverting back to the basic model he has used for the first eight years of his career.

"We'll call it a decent experiment, but ultimately you kind of do what you've always done," Bay said. "You do what you're comfortable with."

The new -- or rather, old -- stance paid immediate dividends Monday, when Bay finished 2-for-3 with a single and a double against the Braves.

"You realize that you already have the answer," Bay said. "You've just got to perfect it."
