I had really high hopes for Bossman Junior coming into the 2009 season. I was expecting a ton of stolen bases, plus an increase in his power numbers, so far he has been awful. I understand the season is only a month old, and B.J. missed the first week, however I am worried that he might have a lingering injury. Any thoughts?

im not quite sure here either... imo its obviously 1 of 2 things, either the injury is still hanging around with him (which i don't think is the case as hes a smart player and tampa is a smart organization for the most part, so i don't think they would opt to not protect one of their young bright stars)... option 2 is more of what i think is going on, frankly his timing is just way off i mean with the surgery and recovery time he didn't get much a rehab prior to the season starting, and hell like you said spent a week on the DL to begin the season... imo hes trying way too hard to produce and thus throwing his timing way out of wack... i wouldn't punch the panic button just yet, give it a little more time and see if he can put it all back together, i know from my own personal experiences with injuries i don't care how many doctors tell you are good to go, its still the stupid human mind that screws with you, not wanting to go 100% or even 85-90% on that repaired part of the body until your mind is comfortable with it, sometimes it takes longer then expected...

Great thanks to soto for the sweet sig!...
