There was a little brotherly miscommunication in left centre field as the Upton brothers converged on a routine fly ball. It would have been funnier if after colliding, B.J. put Justin in a headlock and gave him a mad noogie to the head.
The post Brotherly Miscomunication: The Upton Brothers Collide appeared first on Baseball Hot Corner.
Tweet When brothers B.J. and Justin Upton were united on the Atlanta Braves during the offseason many fans had visions like this for what was to come in 2013. Unfortunately, everything isn’t always so perfect as was the case Tuesday against the New York Mets. Thankfully, neither appeared to be hurt on the play. [...]
Atlanta Braves outfielders B.J. and Justin Upton violently collided going after a fly ball. Afterwards, it was bro shoves all around.
UPTON HERE, UPTON THERE
Aside from a hot April where Justin Upton hit .298 with 12 home runs, the Upton brothers have been hot garbage in Hotlanta this season, their first with the Braves. Justin has seen his average plummet to .247 overall and he has only hit three home runs since April 27. Brother B.J. has been worse, much much worse. Through 206 at bats, B.J. is hitting an awful .165 with eight home...
ATLANTA Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 3-0 win over the Giants, clinching Atlanta's series victory over the defending champs:
1. Julio Teheran has been lights-out since getting a wake-up call on the coldest day of the season
Remember that Braves-Rockies series in late April, when Colorado broke the franchise record for coldest game at Coors Field ....
Justin Upton has seen a lot of Sergio Romo and knew what pitches to look for -- and what pitch to take.
Freddie Freeman didn't have that advantage, so he said he was just looking for anything to hit.
The strategies worked for each of the Braves' hitters in a ninth-inning comeback against the Giants' closer.
Upton drew a bases-loaded walk from Romo to force in the tying...

Are B.J.Upton’s struggles affecting brother Justin?
All the focus has been on B.J. Upton‘s struggles, but B.J. isn’t the only Upton struggling. Brother Justin has cooled off considerably since his fast April start.
Justin won the April National League Player of the Month, mainly on the strength of his 12 home runs. He also had a lofty .402 on-base-percentage and scintillating...
It has been almost a month since my last look-in on the Atlanta Braves, and since that April 24th loss to the Colorado Rockies the team has had its share of highlights as well as several games they would definitely like to forget. During this time the team has had twenty-two games and was able to post a respectable 10-12 record, leaving the team at 25-18 with a 2 game lead over the...
Justin Upton is good, but not great. Over his career, Upton has been in the top ten of MVP voting once, named to two all-star teams, and won one silver slugger. But for some reason, people talk about him like he’s won five MVPs, has been named an all-star every year, and has won multiple silver slugger and gold glove awards. The Diamondbacks drafted Upton with the first overall...
The Atlanta Braves made a series of power moves in the off-season and they are paying off.
The headlines stated early that Justin Upton and his brother BJ would make a huge difference for the club both in the outfield and at the plate.
The team is riding a 10-game winning streak that is its longest since they won 15 straight in the spring of 2000.
