Bay 'hands down' the left fielder for Mets
ATLANTA -- Though Jason Bay arrived at Turner Field on Wednesday having sat out three of the Mets' last five games, manager Terry Collins was adamant that Bay has not entered into a platoon situation with Willie Harris.

"Obviously he's the left fielder here," Collins said of Bay. "Hands down. There should be no discussion about that. He's going to play the majority of the time."

Back in the lineup Wednesday, Bay started in left field and hit sixth. He entered the day with a .273 slugging percentage, second-worst among all National League hitters with at least 150 plate appearances.
