The Red Sox introduced new left fielder Jason Bay to the media around 4:09 p.m. this afternoon. Bay will bat fifth tonight for the Sox and wear No. 44.

Im not going to be Manny Ramirez, said Bay. Im going to do what I can do.

Bay was asked how he might handle the pressure of playing in Boston.

Theres a lot of people in here, thats for sure, he said, referring to the media members at the press conference. Im not the first person to ever be traded here, Im not the first person to ever play here. Everyone else seems to adjust to it and do just fine. Im sure itll be an adjustment period, but Ill be fine.

Bay, who grew up in Trail, British Columbia, said he dad was a diehard Red Sox fan. He said that as an infant he wore a Red Sox onesie, which he still has.
