Wonder if we where one of the four.The Arizona Diamondbacks have constructed a four-team deal that's currently dormant. Would net them Asdrubal Cabrera, if it's revitalized.
"According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Diamondbacks and Braves have concluded that they are "not going to be a fit" for a Justin Upton trade."
Just don't see this deal happening. Looks like we will be settling for Swisher/Kubel/ or internal option .
Heard the RedSox got victorino..Another one bites the dust. I think we still get a LF, but he probaly won't be leadoff.
Guys who are at the meetings(Bowman,DOB), say we might have a chance to land Alex Gordon. We have the right pieces, and it wont cost as much as upton. Just wishful thinking lol.
“I can’t wait to stand on the podium with Zygi and Mark and Jonathan, and we’re standing on the podium, and we look up and the confetti is falling down on top of us, and we’re all hand in hand, and Commissioner Goodell comes over and hands the Super Bowl trophy to Mr. Wilf and tells him he’s world champion, that is my goal and that is my drive.”
- Mike Zimmer
I'd be happy to land Gordon.
In other news, it appears as if this thread can be closed.
The Braves and Diamondbacks have concluded there's not going to be a fit for an Upton trade, tweets ESPN's Jayson Stark. The Braves do not intend to trade shortstop Andrelton Simmons.
Although the D-Backs have been aggressive in shopping Upton in Nashville, no team has stepped up to offer a frontline shortstop, tweets Bob Nightengale of USA Today.
MLB.com's Anthony Castrovince notes that Upton trade rumors are becoming an annual tradition, and wonders if this could be the year he's finally moved. "It sounds like they kind of want to," said a rival NL scout. "But it's hard to pull the trigger."

**** that blows.
I hope they dont sign cody ross, rather play gattis an take my chances then that clown
Cody Ross would be plan D for me...
Ross in LF and Prado at 3B for LHP and Prado in LF and Francisco at 3B for RHP (and maybe working Ross in to face some rightys to keep him fresh) wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. I'd prefer Gordon esp. with Upton likely unobtainable, but this would work plus Ross can play all three OF positions (CF in a pinch, but I wouldn't leave him there for long).
