Is Fredie being forced to keep B. J. in the lineup?

Is Fredie being forced to keep B. J. in the lineup? 


How many more K's will it take to sit this guy down for good? Also an error tonight, not to mention his attitude problem. I just don't understand how he can still be in the lineup no matter how much money he is being paid. I will at least give Fredie a little credit for moving him out of the lead off spot that was just depressing to watch. Although this move should have been made a long time ago. The better and most important move is to get this guy out of the lineup for good. The Uggla experiment finally ended I hope the BJ show will finally close soon.

It's just hard to swallow that a middle-income team is going to have to eat so friggin' much money for these two guys to not even play.

The error that cost the game was on BJ Upton.  His defensive play has been poor and his K's are inexcusable.  Gonzales should bench him.  Looking back since the All Star break, how much of a liability has BJ been for the Braves.  I was going to the Marlins series but forget it....management doesn't want to win.

How BJ ranks and based on his contract he surely must rank as the worst signing in MLB history. Something physically has happened to BJ for him to have eroded this much.

Fangraphs and Baseball-Reference. There are 152 players qualified for the batting title, a lower numerical rank is obviously better


K%..150th

BA..151st

OBP..144th

SLG..148th

OPS..148th

OPS+..148th

wOBA..146th

wRC+..146th

RC..132nd

rWAR..149th

fWAR..132nd

WPA..145th

BJ's Seven (7) errors in CF lead all CF'ers to demonstrate that not only have his offensive baseball skills have eroded to showing he is one of the worst players in MLB, but he is also the worst defensive CF'er in MLB

According to that BJ appears to be the worst everyday player in baseball. Wow. How did we luck out like that?

I'm actually wondering if there is some sort of physical ailment that is causing him to lose hand eye reflex or coordination. His motor skills are not major league anymore.
