2015 Topps BJ Upton 184 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾
Here we have the player that every Braves fan cites when they claim to be glad that the Braves didn’t make another high price free agent signing. The signing was, of course, a disaster. The Braves had a young nucleus of Simmons, Heyward and Freeman with an in his prime Brian McCann and decided to go for it. It was a risk. It failed. C’est la vie.
I don’t agree that it means the Braves should avoid high proceed free agents in the future however.
