Isnt that the big knock on the Elder Upton? Lots of power, but lots of K's?


I suspect this lineup is going to be capable of putting up tremendous numbers, but will be damned streaky at times (moreso than baseball is already).

If you guys get hot at the right time... watch out. But one or two unfortunate cold spells can also end a playoff run.

We can sit here and talk lineups all we want but it's baseball. You have no idea what's going to happen. For example: Atlanta had a lineup with Eric Hinske and Tyler Pastornicky in it produce 15 runs in 1 game last year.

I'll take it. At the end of the game, the team with the most runs wins whether or not they got the most strike outs

I like the move too. and miss prado equally, but the ownership saves 10 million this year in the deal. Hopefully they spend it or extend someone.

Joe Lemire picks Braves as co-favorites in the NL along with NL East rival, the Nats.

The outfield has "the potential for 90 HR and 80 SBs". I like the sound of that!

Bud Selig should be ashamed of himself. This BS system he's created is sure to screw another team again this year.

1 of the 2 best teams in baseball will end up playing in the Wild Card 1 game roulette spin. Either us or Washington will be in that game and that's an injustice.

I've thought about this for a while... and dig it. Positives and potential far out weighs negatives and risk.

I will remain a huge Prado fan til his career ends.

This is news I needed in this college football hangover I can't shake.

I think it was Grantland that wrote an article describing Bud as the least worst commissioner in sports. Yep, Bill Simmons wrote an article about commissioners.
