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.
2013 Vikings Draft:
RD1: Sharrif Floyd DT Florida
RD1: Xavier Rhodes CB Florida State
RD1: Cordarrelle Patterson WR Tennessee
RD4: Gerald Hodges LB Penn State
RD5: Jeff Locke P UCLA
RD6: Jeff Baca G UCLA
RD7: Michael Matui LB Penn State
RD7: Travis Bond G North Carolina
RD7: Everett Dawkins DT Florida State
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."

My Braves Bold Predictions 2012
Freeman and Heyward will hit .285+ with 25+ homers
Hanson will win 15+ games
Uggla will hit .270+ with 35+ homers
Delgado/JT/pastor will be R.O.Y.
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).
