I don't think you overvalue the Braves at all. They have fans all over the freaking place and dominate the southeast.


I don't think I do either. I always got the impression that the Braves did extremely well from a tv viewing standpoint.

And then to Swamps point, how were the Braves so far off in where they valued themselves at compared to everyone else? I just don't see how a team filled with TV people (Turner/Time Warner) drops the ball so much and didn't realize how much TV rights were about to skyrocket. Not to mention how dumb it is to sign a 30yr contract and include no buyout clause.

I found an article that talks about the Braves and a national tv deal and how it could save them but I don't see how. It sounds like every team will benefit from the deal and not just us which doesn't really do anything. LINK

Another good article

Bowman seems to think the Braves will land Upton and then go after Victorino or J Up for the other OF spot.

I've seen Mejia play at Gwinnett before and can not understand why he isn't on the roster.

The Upton boys would be the new Jones boy.. only actually related this time.

That would be FANTASTIC if they swung that. Justin Upton is flat out Beast! No Victorino please.

Are you trying to say Andruw and Chipper weren't related?

I"m not big on BJ Upton but Justin would be crazy but isn't he a RF. Hey if he can play LF lets do it. Sign Victorino and put him in CF. I know I'm dreaming but that would be silly good.

1. Victorino
2. Prado
3. Heyward
4. Justin Upton
5. Freeman
6. Uggla
7. McCann
8. Simmons


That's a beast of a line up
