ST. PETERSBURG, Florida - Brett Lawrie, still looking to find his offensive groove, spent Thursday afternoon taking extra batting practice. When he wasnt swinging for the fences, he was swinging back at Twitter followers expressing frustration with his slow start. "All u people who chirp when things dont go good have never done anything in pro sport .. Ever .. So shut ur mouths #LetsGetThisThingg #jays," said Lawrie in a tweet that was later deleted. He later clarified what he meant. "I expect that," said Lawrie. "I expect a lot out of myself but at the same time, Im not going to sit there and take all that from people that I dont know. So if I want to say something back, I have more than the right to. Freedom of speech. People want to come at me with something then Im not scared to say something back." As reporters meandered into the press box shortly before three oclock, Lawrie could be seen down on the field, alone with hitting coach Chad Mottola, working on his swing. First he hit off a tee; he progressed to soft toss and finally, batting practice pitching. "Just getting reps," said Lawrie. "Not necessarily working on anything, just getting reps, just getting rhythm thats about it." Surely there was more to it. "Were just trying to control him a little bit more," said Mottola. "The way hes wired his high intensity and in hitting most of the time it doesnt work. Just trying to get some things that will slow him down without saying take away his quick twitch. You know the way he plays third base, the way he hits hes got to be moving but were just working on modifying that a little bit." Lawrie was hitting .175 in 21 games; his on-base percentage a woeful .247 entering Thursdays action. Lawrie shrugs off as an "excuse" the notion hes still catching up after a spring training cut short by a ribcage injury suffered on March 6. Mottola, however, believes theres truth to it. "We were trying to change some things from the prior year as well," said Mottola. "So I think he needed spring training more than other guys so he could go through the transition period of at bats meaning nothing. And the way he wants it so bad and the way hes probably worse than the way the public wants it so weve got to protect him against himself sometimes because he wants it so bad he tends to try to go get the ball out of the pitchers hands. The way the game works you cant do that." Manager John Gibbons removed Lawrie from the leadoff spot for the finale of the series against the Rays. "Yeah he hasnt been getting on base a whole lot," said Gibbons. "Rajais (Davis) in there against the lefty, well get him there at the top because thats a good spot for Raj when hes in there." Mottola is conscious of Lawries intense nature; his inclination toward constant movement. The mechanical adjustments are minor – specifically moving Lawries hands in closer to his body – and arent meant to change Lawries approach at the plate, which Mottola doesnt believe is an issue. "Every guy is wired differently and thats the way hes wired so we cant take that away," said Mottola. "Were just trying to modify it and control it and put it in different spots of his swing. Saying, okay, you can do all this but lets not do it as much with the body. Hes seeing the ball well because hes laying off some tough pitches, hes getting in to hitters counts but hes not doing what he should do once he gets in those hitters counts so were just trying to shorten it up a little bit." "This is one of those things," said Lawrie of his slump and his effort to work out of it. "Youve just got to keep grinding it out, a lot of ABs and a lot of games to go so Ive got to stick to what Im doing, stick to my plan and just keep getting my work in and keep doing it."
