this is all just my own thoughts, as I am a fellow owner wondering whats up...

thinkign that hes going thru basically his spring training now. since he didnt play much at all during spring while recovering from shoulder surgery, his timing and just about everything else is off. he also went thru a sore quad thing a couple weeks back, so who knows if that is affecting the way his legs come into play during his swing.

once he gets his timing down...the power should come along with a hot streak...just hoping its sooner, rather than later

I was listening to game yesterday and the TB announcer was saying that he was pulling off the ball and hitting a lot of grounders to the strong side. I think it is more of a head/confidence problem right now over health problem. Way too many K's especially to start the game just sets a bad tone for rest of AB's.

B.J. Upton, CF TB
News: If anyone could appreciate how B.J. Upton felt, it was Dioner Navarro. "I feel like I haven't been contributing offensively," Upton said Tuesday after his seventh-inning double ended an 0-for-20 skid -- longest of his career -- and helped the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Baltimore Orioles 6-3. "I don't know if I'd say it was a relief, but it was definitely a little bit of weight off my shoulders." Upton was stuck in a 5-for-53 rut. Upton finished 1-for-4 in the game and is hitting .157.
