Parting thoughts on BJ Upton

Hyped by on December 4, 2012 Website: sportschump.net

For years, the Tampa Bay community maintained an odd sort of love/hate (but mostly hate) relationship with their former centerfielder, BJ Upton. I say former because that all ended last week. After signing a lucrative five-year, $75 million contract, Upton is now a member of the Atlanta Braves.

Personally, I’m happy for him. This was money he was not going to get in Tampa, who only last year re-signed him to a one year deal worth $7 million. That’s a far cry from his actual market value, as Atlanta just demonstrated.
