2009-06-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)B.J. Upton hit a 420+ foot homerun a few nights ago. Is the power coming back?
(ODB from Pittsburgh)
He's been a league average hitter the past month or so, which isn't exactly what we're looking for but is much better than what he was giving us when he started the year. Hopefully this is a step towards being as awesome as we know he can be. C'mon B.J., your brother is starting to pick it up. Put a poster of Billy Ripken up on your wall for motivation or something.
