Jason Bay will report to spring training Tuesday, and he plans to do so with no further complaints about the Pittsburgh Pirates' few roster moves this offseason.

"I responded to the comments I had made at the end of last year," Bay said shortly before arriving in Bradenton last night. "That's it. Time to move on and focus on what wedohave."

On Jan. 25, the day PirateFest opened at David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Bay publicly expressed disappointment that management had not done more five waiver claims and a minor free-agent signing to bolster a team that went 68-94 last season, saying, "I think that, for a championship-quality team, you need to make more moves. And I'm not talking about the .500 team we can be. I don't think anyone in this room is going to tell you we're a championship-quality team."

I'm surprised Bay and Wilson stuck around for as long as they did. they both was good enough to make way more money somewhere else other than in Pittsburgh.
