    Been wondering about this. I still don't understand how someone has a bad year and wins an arbitration case.

    It's right in and amongst Disney World, so there's no lack of places to stay or things to do.

    I was very surprised Minor won in arbitration. I figure him winning makes it even more likely that he'll be traded sometime this season or in the off-season.

    The FO that needlessly promoted him early knew what they were doing and are paid to do this. We aren't, so we can't know more than them. Correction....they used to be paid to do this..

    I also don't see the reasoning behind signing DK over CK, and I'm going to assume the Braves can only afford one of them. Like Bumgarner, DK would be an improvement in the rotation, but it seems like CK would be a bigger improvement in the BP.

    There’s an amusement park nearby. Worth checking out.

    The decision is based off the past two years, not just the previous one. Mike was very good in 2013.

    It's hard for the baseball feels to hit me when it's 25 degress outside at 4 PM. But the feels are slowly overtaking my body.

    You'll be right on the outskirts of Disney World. There are tons of places to stay, depending on the $$$ you want to spend. Wide World of Sports has a cost to look around if you don't have a game day ticket. Ridiculous, but true. Orlando has many chain restaurants, and sports bars. If you like that kind of thing. Kinda short on trendy places. The traffic is horrific..so be prepared to drive with your head on a swivel. Pedestrians are nuts too. Bring tons of sun screen, a hat, and sunglasses. It's a great stadium, and lots of fun, but everything is expensive. EVERY SINGLE THING.......

    Yes, haha, when in Rome dude ... some decent bars at Downtown Disney, even better if you are thinking about staying somewhere in the immediate area.

    . . .

    When B.J. Upton reports to spring training, the Braves center fielder he will wear a uniform with a bit of a different look.

    For what’s believed to be the first time in his professional career, Upton will have “Upton Jr.” on the back of his jersey, rather than just “Upton” that he’s worn until now. He also has Upton Jr. on the nameplate above his locker for the first time.
