Jim Bowden on twitterBraves-Phillies in fascinating bidding war for BJ Upton with mystery team...Braves considered in slight lead with final offers due this week.
ohh..how many bidding wars do the braves win?? Not many...cause they don't normally get into them..lol. Upton is going to get paid alright...
Mystery team is what scares me
2/3 of the world is covered by water, the other 1/3 is covered by
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

It is anyway, not anyways.
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.

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.
