Hi Rays fans.
Earlier in the season I made a brief trip down to St. Pete's for a day, and I took in a Rays game. It was while at this game, that looking through the game day program, I learned of this epic bobblehead being given out on July 6th, the retro-Evan Longoria. I would really like to have such a bobblehead to add to my collection.
Anyway, to get to the point, I was wondering if there would be anyone here who would be willing to make a trade with me; I know DRaysBay is probably one of the more saber-centric blogs among the MLB family on the network here, so try not to laugh at the notion I'm going to propose here and remember I'm talking about bobbleheads. But based on my interactions with a few Rays fans on my trip, I learned that there really are a few people that still like B.J. Upton, even in spite of his negative WAR and pretty much having the worst year of his career as a member of the Braves.
So, being a Braves fan and Atlanta resident, I would like to see if anyone is interested in making a trade for a retro-Evan Longoria bobblehead for an Atlanta Braves B.J. Upton bobblehead that was given out on June 20th. I have an extra, and I'm hoping that somewhere here, there's someone with an ambivalent girlfriend, spouse, or several kids who would have an extra Longo, AND still has a fondness for B.J. Upton even though he's no longer a Ray, probably for 21.8 fWAR he contributed in his eight years for the Rays, or when he lost his head and went nuts on MLB during the 2008 postseason chase, to where they'd be interested in a B.J. Upton bobblehead.
If there is anyone interested, please feel free to comment, or email me (in profile). Or if you want to be the guy that whips out the "laugh and hang up the phone" line, I'm sure we can get some laughs out of the hypothetical straight-up deal of Longo for BJ, and how the Braves need to include Julio Teheran and Craig Kimbrel to even make it close to worth it.
