As a Braves' trade target, I'd hustle after Tampa's B.J. Upton | Mark Bradley: "The upside for Upton: A change of scenery, which can’t hurt if he’s getting into it with Longoria, who’s the main man in Tampa. And a different managerial voice in Bobby Cox, for whom everyone loves playing. And the promise of an even different managerial voice when Fredi Gonzalez takes over next season. (Wait. Am I getting ahead of things here?)
The potential snag: Fredi Gonzalez doesn’t like guys who don’t hustle. Ask Hanley Ramirez."
Great points. A little less important is how much the Rays will need to deal a superstar talent.
1B Freddie Freeman heads the package.
