    I think any team in baseball would take him at those prices...

    I mean Upton is only 27. At 31 his range will have only minimally diminished. Lets not over-age him. He's the best guy out there in FA in the OF. Hamilton may be a better bat, but with his numerous problems, age, and price tag isn't worth spending our entire offseason budget.

    Next couple days should be fun.

    there is always a mystery team. I'm really rooting for the braves to get upton, I think he fits really well and I like when the braves are good

    Yeah but there are many times when mystery teams actually come out and sign the person I'm just hoping it's not this time

    BJ has power... something you can't teach. I think when our hitting couches get ahold of him, you will see him get on base more. I am not saying he will be a 300 guy but You should see great improvment.

    Wouldn't surprise me if the mystery team was the Nats. We know they need a CF and are flirting with Bourn.

    I will be ecstatic to see an actual good arm in CF though.
    hey J smooth is the combo of both of these guys together when it comes to defensive CFs, but his bat was just so terrible it didn't matter anymore lol

    yeah i can see the nats bidding for him just simply due to the fact that they can buy anyone they want and they know BJ is another step closer to the braves being the leaders of the division! BJ is a given, but I want to see what we do for LF. Wil Meyers would be an awesome trade and would give us the power bat we are looking for, I just dont see wren wanting to have such a young team because come time to resign players I dont see us keeping heyward, freeeman, kimbrel, meyers, medlen, beachy, etc.

    I agree with you on Hamilton. I'm really hoping BJ signs on with us...
