Just saw Buster Olney talking about this on ESPN, so in attempt to not allow his stupidity to stick I thought I should post my response. No excuse for B.J. Upton's lack of hustle or his getting picked off, but I don't understand how Evan Longoria is seen as not doing any harm. If a player is going to say something to Upton in the dugout it should be another outfielder not an infielder. Otherwise wait to get in the clubhouse.
Longoria has 353 games in the league. BJ Upton has 586. Carl Crawford has 1153 games played. Carl Crawford should have stepped up and said something if anyone.
Who should have been the one to step up and say something to BJ Upton?
