Upside? Green has upside? Green is 32, and has been in a big 3 year slide.
These aren't good trends. In fact, they are a little disturbing. Interesting that some prefer a 800 ops guy over a 1.000 ops guy. Sure the BOB will help some, but not a 28 hr to 40 hr increase. 2 reasons. Green has poor road stats

and, Green had the 8th highest g/f ratio in the NL (1.9). Hard to hit hrs when you are hitting grounders. The fact he's hitting 28 is a bit of a surprise, given the extreme g/f ratio. Green could go 30 90, but Hafner should do that easily. Check out Hafners road stats
