    Campos
    Depaula
    Sanchez

    ???

    I wouldn't. And normally I prefer to unload specs.
    I know how to make this thread explode.

    Cano for Upton.


    And so, a new era begins.....

    .281/.361/.469/.830 Averaged 95 runs, 22 HRs, 75 RBI, 19 SBs


    And before everyone says Ichiro wasn't motivated because he was in Seattle, keep in mind Upton is in Arizona.

    But you want the farm gutted!

    The D Backs GM just said yesterday that he wants a haul in return, if he is even traded.

    Cano, Nova, Logan, and either Heathcott or Williams for Upton and Aaron Hill.

    I'm not a big Upton guy, but curious as to whether this would get Arizona's attention.

    No way!

    At the worst let Cano walk.....gotta see more from Nova and Mason Williams and Heathcott are what this team needs in a few years.

    NY is trying to get under a budget. The last thing they can do is trade away a bunch of potential cheap young guys for Upton and then trade him and more cheap, young guys for a pitcher making 20 million dollars a year.

    I'm all in favor of being fiscally responsible as long as we have a well thought out plan and it doesn't prevent us from putting a quality product on the field. We should be able to put a quality product on the field for $189 mil.

    The issue, however, is that we are stuck with big contracts for under performing players on the wrong side of 30 and our farm is not generating the players we need to fuel a youth movement. Thus, we will be stuck in mediocrity unless we use some of our aging assets to get pieces for our future.

    IMO, we would be better off shaking things up.

    1. Get CC to waive his non-trade clause and dump him to Texas for Olt and
    Profar.

    2. Trade Granderson to Seattle for prospects.

    3. Make a serious effort to sign Cano with CC's money or trade him fast
    before the season starts.

    4. Make a serious effort to land a young star (e.g. Upton, Stanton, whoever)

    5. Make a decision on the future of Hughes. Either sign him or trade him. Its
    crazy to let him walk for free. Had we been thinking clearly about
    Swisher, we may have been able to swap him and another for Choo.

    A source told David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that the Braves have not restarted trade talks for Justin Upton since he rejected a move to Seattle.

    The news isn't indicative of much. The Braves might no longer have interest in acquiring Upton, or they could be reevaluating what to offer the Diamondbacks for him. The Mariners' four-player package included Taijuan Walker, Nick Franklin, Stephen Pryor and Charlie Furbush.
