    Upton & Upton for Braves

    What are everyone's thoughts on the Braves Justin Upton starting off the season with 5hr in te first 5 games. Also he had a great moment to tonight with his brother BJ when he homered in the 9th to tie the game and then Justin Upton homered to walk off today. I was extremely excited but how does everyone from the outside think it looks. Everyone said he looks like he is on a mission.

    It's a good start, but it's a long season. I don't know how anybody could really read anything into this either way. Just enjoy his great play, and try not to over analyze it.

    I'm excited as he his hot right now but I know it's a long season but if he starts hot it gets alot of pressure off him bc of everyone just about around baseball is seeing how he responds after leaving AZ. I have said for a few months now that I think he is capable of having an MVP caliber season bc of all the power in the lineup that the pitchers have to navigate through. But it is a long season so I will continue to cheer my bravos on.

    Definitely agreed, not just with this case, but all cases. Everywhere you turn, people (ESPN all the way down to random fans) are trying to predict the whole season based off of less than a week of play. Nobody can tell how anything will end up yet

    ESPN employs idiots and talking heads. They have to find filler for ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN News, etc etc, plus their insipid magazine.

    Only a fool would look at the first week of the season, and proclaim that somebody is a front runner for the league MVP.

    As for Justin Upton, I've always felt he was capable of winning an MVP. He just needs to stay healthy, and avoid any slumps, and he will be in the thick of it. He hasn't touched his ceiling yet.

    And if I sound a little grumpy, it's because Justin Upton is pulling this "hey look, I'm Mike Stanton. Look how far I can hit the ball" BS before I was able to buy his '05 Bowman Chrome auto for the $60 it was going for a couple of weeks ago.

    I wonder how much it would matter to the Dbacks now that Upton isn't "gritty" enough?

    Braves are 7-1 and Upton is carrying the team offensively. He hit a 2B off the wall last night just missing another HR. He is finally healthy and the Braves are looking extremely smart for getting him. This pic is pretty awesome from after his walkoff the other night...

    Live the pic and have been enjoying the first week and half of baseball as braves are 8-1. The braves have a very tough series with the nationals coming up this weekend. Hopefully our pitching holds up and we get some timely hits.
