All members of the Upton family report to Atlanta.

No truth to the rumors of Kate Upton learning how to play second.

3 years of Upton for 1 year of Martin Prado. The thing is both Uptons and Jason Heyward are inconsistent, but even if they aren't hitting that's a really good defensive OF.

Allegedly she wanted to pitch but after looking at her record they realised that she allowed too many men to score.

J-Up is rather weak defensively. He should be a standout fielder, and he has a rocket launcher of an arm (think cruz-like) but he takes bad routes on balls, does not always hustle on plays and loses focus often in the field.

He is a hell of a player though, and this is a steal of a trade for the Braves. I love that OF trio.

Braves have the greatest underachieving OF in Baseball History. All 3 of Justin,BJ and Jason where suppose to be the next big thing at one point and all 3 have failed so far

Ill agree about BJ Upton, but Justin is a season removed from finshing top 5 in the mvp vote and Hayward was very good last year hitting and won a gold glove, his arrow is still very much pointing straight up

Yeah, I wouldn't characterize any of them as failures. Can think of much bigger busts, even just staying in the Braves organization.

BJ has been kind of a disappointment for a #1 overall pick, the guy can run and field like a mad man but his hitting, especially for average has always been below par

Well, I guess if you are comparing him to the likes of Ryan Broun, he won't stack up. But Nate McLouth, Jose Constanza, Jordan Schafer, Garrett Anderson, Melky Cabrera, Matt Diaz, Jeff Francoeur? Man, we've had some crappy OF's in the last five years. 2013 is going to be such an improvement.
