It's Sunday, and that means another Mark Topkin piece this week focuses on B.J. Upton becoming (as we've said for weeks upon weeks) the Rays' version of Chone Figgins, basically he'll play 3B, SS, 2B, and OF for the Rays, much like Chone.
As I've stated before the notes section is much more interesting to myself on a week to week basis, and as Jake has noted recently Seth McClung's new look consists of a more 'ripped' look, Topkin notes this as well:
Need another reason to hate the drunken party animal known as Bronson Arroyo, here you go:
That's great Bronson, at least you show some love to your hometown team.
That answers one of my questions to Marc Lancaster earlier this week.
Other notes include that the Rays will have thrice daily yoga classes and that center fielder Rocco Baldelli was treated for altitude poisioning during his trip to Switzerland.
Oh and this:
I just want to thank the blog Gods for giving us Aki, he's a goldmine, I mean I'm not even blinking anymore when I heard that he originally asked for his glove to be made of a ray before changing it to an aligator, and yes I'll refrain from making a Steve Irwin joke, the soul still hurts my friends.
