Hey All,

I found this article online and thought it was an interesting read. It's about if the Rays should get rid of B.J. Upton.

It is one thing to be patient with a player who is injured, or in a slump (which he is both right now). But its another thing when that player has an attitude problem. After seeing his conduct during that horrible series against the Diamondbacks, I wouldn't mind if they tossed him. He played horrible, and he put fourth little effort. He tried to blame another player after allowing a triple instead of a double because he jogged after a ball, and then he exploded at Longoria (team leader and face of the franchise) for saying something to him about it. And after he got thrown out at first, he entered the dugout looking for someone to yell at for something that was clearly his fault. He is a good player, but he can and should be replaced if it continues.

They have been patient. I'm sure if they could get someone decent in return in a trade, they'd do it in a heartbeat. But Beej's stock is very low - we probably couldn't get a used jockstrap for him right now.
