Its easy to see why some organizations are dismal failures year after year. BJ Upton of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays would probably be starting full time already if he hadn't proven himself a certified butcher at shortstop. Unfortunately, he's shown to be a below average defensive third baseman as well. The Rays don't seem to want to let him concentrate on becoming proficient at either position.

In the first week of spring games, Upton played second base, third base, shortstop, center field and right field. Now the Jays figure his best chance to make the 25 man roster is as a super utility guy. If this kid sucks playing the same position every day, how bad will he suck when he's bouncing all over the field?
