AJ wouldn't fit in with the Braves
Change of scenery and a move to the NL could do him good.
Braves are strictly going after bats this season.
We got laird dude is like mid 30s
I'm not so sure McCann is with us in 2014.
That would blow
The braves are cheap bastards. The faster you understand this, the easier October is on you.
Damn your sports world sucks this year. Go be a Phillies fan and take your bad luck with you.
BJ isnt a good bat. Im telling you as a Rays fan he is not worth the money. He had a GREAt second half last year but look at his numbers. Between him and Uggla I promise you would turn into a Phils or Mets fan by seasons end. Not a better defensive outfielder in the Majors than BJ though.
Thats a kick to the nuts
Oh I know but like I said sometimes a change of scenery can do a player wonders
More like a nut check
I'm not a huge Upton fan but CFs with GG D and 30/30 potential don't come around that often. The avg and OBA are bad but he is about the only FA that the team signing him will get his prime years. He's only 28( 5 yrs takes him to 32) and there is hope he can get better. I think the Braves need to let McCan walk after the year. By the end of his next deal he will probably be more of a DH/1B than C.

Upton has 14 more Ks than Bourn did with higher OPS, 15 more extra base hits and 19 more HRs FWIW.
A lot of people are forgetting that Bourn had a little bit of a slump in the 2nd half
Blue Jays getting serious.
Blue Jays To Sign Melky Cabrera
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [November 16 at 12:51pm CST]
The Blue Jays have agreed to sign Melky Cabrera to a two-year, $16MM contract, Enrique Rojas of ESPNdeportes.com reports. ACES represents Cabrera, who must pass a physical for the deal to be completed.

This. I like Bourn but not for 100 million. Would rather have a legitimate 30/30 guy with a good glove and RH.
Hope we make a move on getting another arm.
They are making a splash for sure.
Do the Jays play in a pitcher park or hitters park?
Neutral I'd say.
I might eat my own words. They arent playing
Melky at that price is a great signing. The second year is big for the Jays to and I think he is 28 and should get another long term deal. I don't think he is as good as he played in SF but the KC Melky was good to. The downside is he's a cancer. Braves teamates didn't like him and a main reason the Yanks traded him is he was a bad influence on Cano. Maybe he's changed.
Jays love picking up clubhouse cancers.
Rasmus, Escobar, Melky.
He's a joke. Without the drugs he's a lazy piece of crap. They got rid of Escobar and added an even bigger locker room cancer. Yanks, Braves, Royals, and especially Giants had nothing good to say about him. Doesn't fit at all with all of the team-first guys they just added
Hopefully there is enough leadership in the clubhouse to keep him from doing some stuff. Jays need a veteran manager who isn't afraid to say what needs to be said next year.
Yeah. And I hope they do. It would be great to see that division flip and the O's, Jays, and Rays replace the Sox and Yanks. Just seems like a desperate move to me that at best you get a lazy, mediocre player who's only success came with cheating
