    Care to speculate on terms? Upton is a good player but has flaws in his game..

    where would Upton hit in the lineup?
    the Braves had Bourn in CF last season and batting leadoff. would the Braves use Upton at leadoff? and would that really be wise?
    Upton's OBP each of the last 4 seasons - .298/ .331/ .322/ .313/
    Upton's AVG each of the last 4 seasons - .246/ .243/ .237/ .241/

    I guess it's going to depend on money, but I would rather have Bourn if you're looking for a leadoff hitter.

    could someone else like Martin Prado be better used at leadoff?
    Prado's OBP in each of last 4 years - .359/ .302/ .350/ .358/

    4/60 would be a nice deal for the Braves IMO, but I guess he got at least 5 years + maybe an option.

    Braves would be nuts to give him 4/60... 4/40 seems more reasonable to me....

    I agree! There are some in this thread that don't understand the FA market if they think Upton was going to sign for 4 years, 40 million. 4 years, 40 million won't even get Angel Pagan, let alone BJ Upton. I knew before FA that it was going to take a 5 year deal worth 13-15 million per season to get Upton to sign.

    I assumed he would def top 12 mil a year based on him getting a qualifying offer, and I figured 15 million a year would be the reasonable 'middle-ground'

    Shorter deal would have made the average value better.. Hey its not my money..
