Baseball Quiz

1. Of the eight Braves starters (McCann, Freeman, Uggla, Simmons, C Johnson, J Upton, BJ Upton, and Heyward), which five had an OPS over .800 in June?

2. What does OPS mean?

.865 Heyward
.858 Freeman
.847 Uggla
.824 Johnson
.812 BJ Upton
.751 McCann
.616 Justin Upton
.534 Simmons

And so many fans are saying that Uggla and BJ and Heyward should be benched, and want Wren to re-sign Francoeur and Hinske. Both were batting about .150). The same fans hated to see Jurrjens set free last winter. All three were released by their teams this weekend.

OPS = On Base Percentage + Slugging percentage.
