Rays outfielder B.J. Upton wasn't happy that teammate Evan Longoria called him out in the dugout in range of the television cameras for his lack of hustle in center field last week. But Longoria was well within his rights to immediately question Upton for such an obvious lapse. Don't want to be upbraided by teammates in public? There's a simple solution, and it's not for teammates to be mindful of your sensitivity and ask, "Pardon me, chap, but can I have a word with you in the dugout tunnel away from the cameras?" The solution is not to jog after balls in front of the cameras.
