The Upton Watch
It seems as if the Phillies are looking to dance with BJ Upton, as it was reported that they met with his agent earlier in the week. But so did the Braves. It really seems as if they want Upton. As I’ve said many times already, I am not an Upton fan. I just don’t want another high-strikeout, low- OBP guy in the lineup with a questionable attitude even if he has 30/30 potential. If they sign him, I just hope it is a sane deal.
Of course, this could all be a feint by Amaro, in some strategy to get another player. We shall see.
