Today the Pirates trotted out the following batting order:

Duffy, CF
Wilson, SS
Casey, 1B
Bay, LF
Randa, 3B
Burnitz, RF
Castillo, 2B
Cota, C

The result was a 5-2 loss to the Brewers despite Oliver Perez being in 2004 form... and one official at bat for poor Jason Bay, to go along with three walks.

Now I'm not saying he'll challenge Bonds' single season walk record, but he is on pace for 486 of 'em (*cough*). But really, barring the bases being loaded or something, is anyone going to have any reason to give Bay anything to hit? Ever?
