Found November 12, 2012 on Love My Bravos:
Every time I read the Braves Inbox (used to be called "Mailbag" but I guess no one sends postal mail anymore), I always answer the questions in my head before reading Bowman's replies. This was a fun off-season project last year and I'll do my best to keep up this year. Here's last week's inbox, and here's this week's... What is the possibility that the Braves could trade for Justin Upton and then persuade B.J. Upton to sign a contract? -- Milton G., Snellville, Ga. That would be SO COOL. I just don't know how long we could afford them. I'd like to build a team and keep it the same for a while, you know? Also, there are very few players I'd be willing to trade, and no one is good enough to pry Justin Upton. If Wren ends up trading my Jonny or EO for a big name player I'm going to be as upset as I was when Tom Glavine cheated on me with the Mets.   Why don't the Braves move Heyward to center field? He has proven that he can play t...

Andrelton Simmons Changed Everything

At the end of May, the Braves were trying to get back on track. At 28-24 and on a two-game winning streak, things looked fine in an immediate sense. However, the club was in fourth place, was just coming off an eight-game losing streak, and Tyler Pastornicky looked like the worst player in the major leagues over the first two months. He hit just .243/.287 /.325 and played an awful...

New Gwinnett Braves Manager Named – Randy Ready

MLB Rumors: Could Tampa Bay Rays Replace One Upton With Another?

It appears as if B.J. Upton’s time with the Tampa Bay Rays is just about up, as the free agent center fielder is rumored to be looking at deals with numerous other teams. While he could re-sign with the Rays, such a deal appear unlikely, with other teams likely willing to give Upton a much better offer than Tampa Bay. But while one Upton may be getting ready to depart for greener...

Braves turn sights to signing B.J. Upton

At one point the Atlanta Braves had hopes of signing both Torii Hunter and B.J. Upton. With Hunter signing a two year deal with the Detroit Tigers, the Braves are turning their sights solely to Upton. The Braves have two spots to fill in the outfield thanks to Michael Bourn becoming a free agency and the move of Martin Prado to third base. Upton hit .246/.298/.454 last season. He...

Chipper Jones shows off nasty bruise

Nastylicious. We’ve seen our fair share of gnarly bruises around here (see Lepisto, Sami and Crain, Jesse), so when Braves 3rd baseman Chipper Jones recently tweeted out this photo of his horrifically bruised left ankle—the end result of a BJ Upton line drive off the leg early in the 2012 season—it really shouldn’t have made anyone squeamish in the least, seeing that we...

Chipper Jones Tweets Incredibly Disgusting Bruise Pic

Earlier in May of this year Braves third baseman took a groundball from B.J. Upton off of the leg and was diagnosed with a “left leg contusion.” We can only assume that retirement is a little boring for Chipper so today he decided to Tweet out a picture of the “contusion,” and it is horrible. Y’all remember that line drive from Bj Upton I took off the ankle this year...

Chipper Jones sufferd an incredibly nasty leg bruise earlier in the season (Picture)

Back in May, Chipper Jones spent a short time on the disabled list after he took a B.J. Upton one-hopper directly to the lower leg. The injury was described as a “left leg contusion,” which is a fancy phrase for a bruise. If you criticized Chipper at the time for missing games because of a bruise, you take it back. You take it back right now. Jones tweeted the photo you see above...
