What's Up with BJ Upton?

What's Up with BJ Upton? 


With the exception of one homer in the first Nats games, BJ Upton is becoming the Braves strike out king.  As lead off man, he isn't putting the ball in play.  Gonzales needs to bench him or send him down for a couple weeks until he gets his swing back.

He should be benched. No way does he give the ok to send him to the minors.

Best we can hope for is the trade will happen this off-season

He and Uggla are huge enigmas.At least Uggla had the yr with the hitting streak but that was about all.

Becoming? 

he struck out 151 times in only 391 at bats last year... he has struck out at least 150 times 7 of the last 8 seasons.

and he's leading the Majors in strikeouts this year. He's not becoming the Braves strikeout king... he IS the Majors' strikeout king.

He hasn't hit above .250 in 6 years.

I don't particularly blame Upton... it's not like he's had a fall off the cliff in his production like Uggla, this one is ALL on Wren.
