If you have some inside info please share because MLB has been unable to dispute his age but it seems you and your sources have the proof!

Must not be getting the big ticket offers he expected…Upton is playing a lot better lately. In a way I am relieved. I didn’t want to give up too much for him.

I feel like Marte has been doing it all year and deserves a shot. I know it is tough to go with a rookie in a pennant race but it is working out for Anaheim and Washington.

He also had 2 throwing errors in the same game the other day though and has 3 errors in 18 games. A .676 OPS is hardly good if you look at the overall picture. He has 1000 mlb AB. AAA should not be a major challenge for him. I hope he gets it together because we need him. But too little to late because we will be forced to make a deal first. Not what you want from a guy who signed a longterm deal.

Tabata – .270/.334/.372/.707 Same guy except Tabata plays better defense. Can’t even really say Tabata runs better because Milledge has a career 67% steal rate and Tabata 65%. It could be said that Tabata is younger and still has upside. Milledge is 27, Tabata is listed at 24…but Tabata is probably 26 or 27 so that argument is out. Milledge 5’11″ 210, Tabata 5’11″ 215. Uncanny how similar they are.

I would not call that struggling.He has reached base safely in all 10 games.

First 8 he was hitting in the .240′s; in his last 10 he is hitting .316 with an OBP of .381. He lost confidence in himself in the majors and seems to have relocated himself at AAA. Hopefully our front office will bring him up while he is on a hot streak like he is right now.
