After Friday night’s loss to the Angels, Peter Gammons and Nick Cafardo discussed BJ Upton on NESN. At issue was a flyball that Upton seemed to give up on with some nicely timed alligator-arms (you can see the play here). A run scored on the play and the Rays would go on to lose the game 4-3.
The telling quote comes at the end from Cafardo:” He went through a stretch, maybe a month ago, where he looked like Willie Mays. And now he is back to being BJ Upton.”
