    How did they lose leverage? He has like 3 teams he can veto trades to and the Mariners were one. If anything, their offer just set the market for what it was going to take to get Upton (and it was a steep price).

    Why else do you think the Dbacks would orchestrate an offer with a team they knew Upton was probably going to reject? Their negotiations with other teams needed a baseline since ******** GMs were probably sending out trade proposals they found on this website. And if Upton had accepted, then all the better from the Dbacks perspective.

    If it were that easy, it would have already been done.

As a deal was done between Seattle and AZ but Upton enforced his no trade clause to Seattle. What do you guys think?
    Hal wants the payroll in control and wants to use young players to do that....How is trading those type of players going to help?

    Upton is not coming to the Yankees!

    Upton is making a run at king Felix (thread) status!.... Speaking of which, here
    is my ridiculous trade idea of the off season:

    Arizona gets: prospects named in original trade
    Seattle gets: Cano and Granderson
    New York gets: Upton, Ackley, and King Felix

    Might be the worst trade ever, but its a fun thought

    No, the force trade button works magic, oh.

    I don't think we have the assets to obtain J-Up. He's a young 5 tool player and will demand a haul which we can't offer.

    Oh yeah and I'm sure Seattle's prospects aren't over rated either. All teams over rate their prospects. Yankee prospects are just as good as anyone's.
