08:12 AM ET 01.30 | The two brothers could agree on wanting to play together, which isn't to say there won't be disagreements along the way. [Don't expect] Justin Upton and B.J. Upton to always be genial and polite to one another on the field or in the clubhouse. "We're going to butt heads a little bit," Justin Upton said, smiling Tuesday during his first news conference since being traded from Arizona last week. And don't look for them to buy houses in the same Atlanta neighborhood or condos in the same building. "No," Justin said, without hesitation. "We'll see each other plenty at the field. Obviously we'll ride to the field together sometimes. But we both have lived on our own. We need our space."

The Braves made a huge mistake, there's no upside, didn't they learn that from The Maddox Brothers?

Some cable network will put them in a house together for a reality show.

Neither of these are a lack luster player like Mike Maddux. Also Mike Maddux wasn't brought in with the idea that he would be nearly as good as Greg...

And here I thought the Upton threads would end with the Trade...

The Uptons have yet to blossom. Maybe it'll happen this year, maybe it never will.Atlanta is betting the house, huh?

no more so than the angels did for pujols, cj wilson, greinke...all that for a 3rd place finish.

What in the world are you talking about? First, it's MADDUX...and second, Mike never played for the Braves. I am not even sure that Mike and Greg EVER played on the same MLB team....

The Niekros were the last brothers I remember on the Braves and that went quite well.

The Alou brothers had no issues in SF even when there were three of them.

The Braves had great luck with the Aaron brothers. 768 career HRs between the two of them.
