Some people say that Justin Upton is a good ball player. Those people would be correct. They also may be understating it a little bit. Upton absolutely demolished a baseball yesterday hitting it 451 feet to dead center field off of Pirates starter Juan Nicasio. Won’t someone think of the poor camera operators? He nearly MURDERED someone! Someone needs to stop him. Preferably before my Baltimore Orioles have to face him on May 12.
Upton went 4-5 with 2 RBI’s against the Pirates yesterday and is hitting .333/.357/.913 on the season. The Tigers beat the Pirates by a score of 8-2 and are now 4-2 on the season just a half a game back of the White Sox and the Royals. Upton, I liked you a lot better when you played in the NL.
