Rays Hire Hitting Coach

While I love Rudy Jaramillo, apparently the Rays do not love him as much as the Cubs did so the Rays have hired former Indians hitting coach Derek Shelton. The Indians were quite productive under his tenure as the Indians never finished worse than 12th in wOBA under his tutelage. Job one is to get B.J. Upton back to where he was in the 2008 American League playoffs. If he can do that, he will make a lot of fans very happy.
