Justin Upton in Atlanta
Joining his brother. He's not great, but will drive in 80 to 90 runs and hit maybe 20 HR's. But I have a feeling he is going to have a great season with the Braves. My Braves have improved their roster. Do u agree Catman or not? Marc?

I like the move from the Braves side a lot. They didn't give up a whole lot (Prado is going into his "walk" year), and was replaced by Chris Johnson -- an underrated player that could continue to improve.
Justin Upton should be very comfortable playing next to his brother and not having to be "the man" offensively. He'll be able to settle into a lineup and hit around 6th in the order. Very little pressure on him this year.
Moving closer to home should help a bit also.
