The company of B.J. Upton

Major League Baseball GM’s had only a short while this off-season to salivate at the idea of “Peak Upton” as B.J. Upton has just signed a nice, fat deal with the Braves.  Atlanta will have the center fielder under contract through age 33.

Here is the grand list of 27 year old’s with 100 homers & 200 steals in the history of ball & base:

Rk             Player  HR  SB   Age    G  BB   SO  CS
