    For all the haters who say the Yankees don't have enough to land Upton, wrong. They ARE willing to meet the asking price.

    The only issue here are the Owners worrying about his contract.

    Do they spend to add this 25 year to the lineup or do we stick to 189 and go cheap.

    I am a bit confused on this. If we traded to get Upton and don't trade Grandy, I understand that our payroll would be over $200 mill. But isn't Granderson a FA next year? We need to sign players eventually and the belief is Grandy won't be back. So why not make the trade and take on the salary for this year? I don't see the issue. The problem is next year, not this year

    Well Justin Upton is heading to the Braves...I would have liked to get him over here since he is young and not that expensive and is a player that will make the team better.

    Maybe this means some incredible side-plot to get Stanton. Hahaha. I couldn't even type that without laughing.

    So now that you see what it took to land Upton, what would the Yankees have had to have offered to top what the Braves gave up? Prado was worth 5.4 WAR last year. The only Yankee to top that was Cano (8.2).

    Braves acquired OF Justin Upton and 3B Chris Johnson from the Diamondbacks for 3B Martin Prado, RHP Randall Delgado, SS Nick Ahmed, RHP Zeke Spruill and 1B Brandon Drury.

    Upton was dangled in trade talks for the past couple of years and the Diamondbacks finally decided to pull the trigger this winter. He will start in left field in Atlanta -- next to his brother B.J. in center and Jason Heyward in right. Upton, 25, has hit .284/.363/.481 with 48 home runs, 155 RBI and 39 stolen bases over the last two seasons. He boasts the upside of a perennial MVP candidate.
