No one in the FO will admit he’s cooked, so not only does he play, but he bats cleanup. That .690 OPS and league leader is K’s must be a big relief to opposing pitchers.

Upton has been one of the biggest FA busts of all-time. That’s saying something with all the players that lay down once they get the big $$.

Glad to see UGGLA gone. Such bone head signings.

The one who hired him and DaUggla is in the wrong business. MEGA DITTOS!

No matter what he’s owed, it will be better to pay him “NOT” to play than let Braves Nation wallow in his misery with him.

I hope he enjoys his time away because the other candidates will be all over this opportunity. The Braves are in a win, win situation this year as no one is expecting them to be successful anyway. Why not have fun and concentrate the year on getting Freeman and Simmons back into better hitting form without the pressure. Look at the Hawks and how well they have done with a no name team? Also, this should be the final season for Freddie G. Hopefully the Braves will find a team building manager to go along with the new team forming!

Last year’s team had difficulty scoring runs. Nowhere to go but up there.

many players left without replacing them with adequate talent.” Understatement of the decade. I think the operative word you are searching for is “decimated.” The Braves of last year became a farm team for this year as their talent was picked off like a farm club who simply accomplished what they did last year to showcase their talent for other Major teams to come in and pick and choose at will knowing that John Hart and Co. would treat Atlanta like a bargain basement team with no reciprocal talent on our end of the trade. And now, the only basement they have left us with is the basement of the 2015 rankings. Shameful, detestable, despicable, moronic management. This year will be an utter disaster as will the next three years minimum. Once again, Braves fans are rewarded for their loyalty with a money-grubbing home office who couldn’t care less as long as “the chump fans” continue to take the abuse while they laugh all the way to the Braves Bosses’ Bank! Hope you’re happy upstairs, boys! You destroyed a damn good team that was coming into its own and only needed a few adjustments and some decent cash. 1st year I have DREADED rather than SO looking forward to Spring Training and the Season to come.
