Not so sure about these moves. I think we just traded away our best every day player. i don't know why they have been so reluctant to embrace Martin. Wha was the 2nd bagger before him...Kelly Johnson? Martin had to sho wwhat he could do when KJ got hurt. He can play anywhere across the IF as well as OF and I think is even an emergency catcher. The Upton Bros are strikeout guys which we are already loaded with. Obviously, you like the potential they both bring...maybe both number one picks or, at least, first rounders who made it to the Bigs at 19. Power is over rated (See: Dan Uggla). In the post season it is th egusy who work the count, hit the other way, etc., who win you ball games. Granted, I don't know a heck of a lot about these two guys and having two brothers is cool. I recall as a kid going to games when Tommie Aaron (RIP) played first base. Have to wait and see. We gave up a lot to get them both. Really liked Martin.
