Upton and Company Lookin’ Good
I went to B.J. Upton’s celebrity golf tournament on Monday and I’ll have to say that the Rays players I saw seemed ready to get going in 2010.
Andy Sonnanstine, James Shields, Dan Wheeler and Upton all appeared in great shape and each of them expressed how much they looked forward to the coming season.
Looking back at what went wrong in 2009, I still believe the Rays were running on fumes from the previous season’s playoff run. I like the way this year’s team looks on paper and I think they should be back in the thick of the AL East race in 2010.
