BJ Upton and Evan Longoria screamed at each other yesterday in the Ray’s dugout. The Rays are a frustrated team at the moment. Jonah Keri, who is writing a book on the organization, offers 10 Things the Rays should do to compete for the Whirled Serious.

Does anyone else find it kinda odd that you have two brothers, BJ and Justin, who are both hugely talented and have the potential to be superstars for the next 10 years. But one is firmly establishing himself as a lackadaisical headcase while the other is generally considered a "good kid" who "gets it"?
I don't buy the "out of position" chatter for a minute. You are the CF .... the captain of the outfield. You MUST make every effort to either catch the ball, back-up the corner OF, or RUN after a hit.
 you must not have any siblings who are nutjobs :}
half-assing after that ball was a bad move. he had to run hard after it once it fell and dig it out of the corner.
 well I'm an only, so the ways of the opposite brothers are foreign to me
 got it. well, i am quite familiar with such things :}
The Score was 0-0 and TB was dropping fast. He dogged that play and it was inexcusable. However, he's hugely talented and turning him into a platoon player seems crazy. Hard to believe he has a career OPS+ of 99. Justin is 3 years younger (only 22) and has a career OPS+ of 111.
