The newly acquired Justin Upton will wear no. 8 this season for the Atlanta Braves, Dave O'Brien reports.

Upton wore 10 with the Arizona Diamondbacks, but everyone in the world knows that belongs to Chipper Jones and that it will be retired in the near future.

Meanwhile, that means Uptons @Jus10Up10 is now outdated, so he is letting his Twitter followers pick his new handle.

To sweeten the deal, Upton is giving away a pair of autographed cleats to whoever comes up with the Twitter handle he chooses.
