Happy for him. Good ballplayer.

Didn't make sense for our budget/future, but 'Zona fans will love him.

Zona fans will love him and so will Kirk. He fits in perfectly with what Kirk wants.

re: The ATL Thread: Offseason Edition


quote:

ATLANTA -- Fredi Gonzalez sat down and started writing out projected lineups last week as soon as he heard the Braves had traded for Justin Upton.

It didn't take long. The manager says making out lineups just got easier.

Gonzalez used 107 lineups last year, sometimes adjusting due to the opposing pitcher.

He said his juggling days are over.
He says Justin Upton will be the No. 3 hitter. Older brother B.J. Upton, who signed with Atlanta in November, and catcher Brian McCann, who is recovering from shoulder surgery, will follow in the middle of the lineup.


I'll believe it when I see it

I'm really proud for Prado. There isn't a more deserving guy in baseball.

Last year Fredi said something along the lines of "most multiple series winning managers use many lineups every year"

re: The ATL Thread: Offseason Edition


Seems like a fair deal for both Prado and the Dbacks. $11M/yr over 3 years. Will look better if he moves over to 2nd next year.

If Prado stays at 3rd all year and Upton in LF, my guess is Upton will outperform him by 2 wins at minimum, probably more.

LF is a position where even above average defenders can really rack up the dWAR.
