Re: Upton to Braves
Sounds like the deal was dependent on Prado's willingness to sign an extension.
I will be interested to see if subtracting Prado, Bourn and Jones and adding Upton, Upton and Johnson will improve the lineup that much.
Check out the slash lines from last year
B. Upton - .246/.298/.454
Bourn - .274/.348/.391
J. Upton - .280/.355/.430
Prado - .301/.359/.438
Jones - .287/.377/.455
Johnson - .281/.326/.451
Sure, they picked up sexier names, but did they get THAT much better? I have my doubts.
