Buy B.J. Upton’s $1.6 Million Tampa House With A Huge Wine Cellar [PHOTOS]



Perennially disappointing outfielder B.J. Upton left Tampa for Atlanta — and another huge payday — this past off-season. Upton must have finally finished counting his money, because he put his Tampa home on the market for $1.6 million this week.

After not sustaining a bating average higher than .246 over the past four years in Tampa, Upton was still rewarded with a five-year, $75.25 million contract. That means Braves fans get to see four more years of 150+ strikeouts with slashlines like .185/.266/.292.

The buyer of Upton’s Tampa home will enjoy a custom wine cellar, a media room and a massive, resort-style pool with a poolside kitchen and a tiki wet bar. It’s a perfect venue for hosting teammates who are carrying you through a season.

Just make sure the post office forwards all of Upton’s old mail to him, especially any packages from Braves’ fans.

Highlights of B.J. Upton’s Tampa House:

• 5 bedrooms, 4 baths and 1 half-bath

• 5,270-square-feet

• 4.2 miles to Mons Venus Gentlemen’s Club

• 4.2 miles from Whole Foods

• 9.8 miles to The Magic Emporium, where you can learn the art of deception
