Upton is an excellent center fielder with outstanding range. Sometimes he will have a brain cramp and do things that make you want to pull your hair out, but he will also amaze you with some of the balls that he can flag down. Upton has a decent arm, but overestimates himself sometimes. At the plate, when he's cold, he will swing at a lot of really bad pitches and watch a whole lot of called third strikes right down the pipe, but when he's hot, he can carry a team for weeks at a time. Overall, Upton is a second to third tier player, but he will always seem like an underachiever because fans expect him to play at the "potential" level all the time. There will be lots of talk during the life of this deal where he will be ripped for underproducing that contract, but the Braves are a better team today than they were yesterday.
