Re: Upton to Braves
While I agree I am surprised that Az made the trade, I think it is a pretty cool story that the Upton brothers are now both playing for the same team. Always an interesting dynamic when 2 family members both play together like when Seattle had Ken Griffey Jr and Senior playing in the same line up. I am sure it will be fun for the Uptons.
That being said, The NL just keeps getting better at the top for next year and it is going to be a tough battle to win that pennant or to even make the playoffs with Atlanta, Washington, Cin, Stl, LAD, and SF all looking like they could be the best team in the league.
