    #Braves plan to use RH-hitting Chris Johnson and Francisco in platoon at 3B
    That's a weird platoon.

    Johnson career splits stats:

    Vs RHP: .283/.323/.452 wOBA .335 wRC+ 109
    Vs LHP: .255/.294/.372 wOBA .288 wRC+ 76

    Braves have janish for UTIL.

    And Gattis is not a catcher. He is barely a LF. My guess is he stays in LF and if he pans out, he becomes trade bait down the road.

    He asked for 7 Mil in arbitration. Which is for one season. There have been numerous reports that he was going to ask for north of 11 Mil as a free agent. Take this act somewhere else please.

    I have no idea if this has been addressed yet. Didn't make it to the end of the thread. Just irked me...

    Feel the same way!! Well he have a 3 year window.. We will just see what happens..

    I'm sure he would and playing with his brother is probably a dream come true...but I do think after 3yrs he will be on the free-agent market and the Braves will be without a OF...I hated to lose Prado...I think he's more valubale than Upton cause he plays all positions expect pitcher and catcher and he hits .300 consistently...we will see what Upton does

    I just don't understand your logic. It has been widely speculated that we would not meet Prado's asking price after THIS season. Yet we trade him for a guy with three more years of control, and you call that a rental?

    He probably will test the market, but again that is THREE years away.

    Anyway if we sign Prado on a multiyear deal it will have been for 3-4 years, so after those 3 years we would have to go into free agency, i rather have J.Upton over Prado for the next 3 years. Prado is 29 so don't even think going for more than 4 years with him, taking into account that you will paid at least 12M a year for him.

    everything is speculation...I'm just saying that I'd rather have Prado then to lose Upton after 3yrs...who knows he might have accpeted a 3yr/$30M deal...that would be cheaper than Uptin plus you get more production..

    Like I mentioned before, I could see another bump in the Braves' attendance with the addition of Upton brothers. More money. I'm sure we can obtained Justin after the 3 years if we wanted to. Unless, like you said, he would want a big sum of money, which I think both sides will work out a fair deal. Yes, this is speculation also...

    Of course we have other players to worry about too...

    More production you say? Since 2009.. the year Prado became the full time starter. Upton has a higher overall WAR(16.7 as opposed to 15). This is according to fangraphs. Which is the one that values defense very highly. Which has been Prado's biggest edge over Upton. Not to mention you get a guy in Upton who is just NOW entering his prime...
