Player Notes
B.J. Upton went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and two runs scored as the Braves beat the Padres 8-3 on Sunday.

Advice: Upton has found a home atop the Braves lineup, as he's now scored 22 runs in 28 games from the leadoff spot. He's also managed to put up a line resembling league average, hitting .243/.306/.360 in the top spot before Sunday's game. He's still striking out too much and isn't hitting for as much power as we're accustomed to seeing from Upton, but it's a start.

B.J. Upton went 0-for-5 from the leadoff spot Monday in a loss to the Marlins.

Advice: Believe it or not, Upton has scored 15 runs in his 22 games as a leadoff man. Still, we're talking about a guy with a .270 OBP this season. It's ridiculous that he's getting set up to get more at-bats than everyone else in the Braves lineup.
