The Justin Upton-to-the-Mets stories can now stop — he has been dealt to the Braves, who now have the best team in the National League East.
The Braves get Upton and third baseman Chris Johnson for Martin Prado, Randall Delgado and three minor league prospects.
Atlanta now has a powerhouse lineup that features both Upton brothers and young stars Jason Heyward and Freddie Freeman. Add in their solid pitching and the Braves will likely be back atop the NL East yet again. Just what Mets fans want to hear.
