B.J. Upton signs 5-year, $75 million deal with
#Braves. That's a lot of money for a career .255 hitter, who strikes out 150 times a year.
BJ Upton gets 15M/year. Only OFs to sign for between 15-19 a year Carlos Lee, Magglio Ordonez and Jason Bay.What could possibly go wrong?
In 1884 my WAR (18.6) was 5 points, or roughly two B.J. Upton seasons, higher than $75 M man B.J. Upton has produced in his career (13.6).
B.J. Upton's precise haul was $75,250,000 for 5. Not sure what the extra 250 clams are for (can't hurt tho!)
