    So let me get this straight. An accepted trade of Ryan Dempster for Randal Delgado almost went through. DBacks turn around, trade Upton with Delgado as the center piece? Granted, Prado is involved; however, he has not been a good defensive third baseman. Little shocked.

    At this point, I have no idea what it would take to get Skaggs.

    Prado is the center piece...
    ignoring him in the deal is like ignoring Upton in the deal... Granted.
    how many teams can negotiate an extention with a player under their control? oh ya just them.
    this trade isnt as bad as some of you are making it out to be for the dbacks.

    Prado is definitely the centerpiece and is absolutely a good defensive 3B. Arizona is probably expecting they can re-sign him.

    Oh Prado could make himself some cash in Arizona. Good player with the offensive skills to thrive there and see a boost in power.

    Weird deal but Arizona still has a ton of chips (wassat?) to move around. I like that SS they got...hit almost 40 doubles.

    Absolutely not. Prado is going to be the jewel in the next free agent class for third baseman. More than likely, he is going to demand quite a bit of money. Upton is under team control for 4 years. The value in Upton is just magnified when there is 4 years of team control.

    I'm fairly certain they can talk about a deal with him before finalizing the trade if they want. If he was absolutely not going to resign, don't you think Arizona would already know that?

    And then. He made them pancakes.

    I'm sure a negotiation window will take place now or throughout the season; nevertheless, whoever is representing Prado certainly understands his value come next free agency. I'd be surprised if he settles now rather than further cement himself in the hitter friendly Chase.

    If Arizona is smart he will be flipped for assests before the deadline...if they want to replace the youth they just gave up. However since I think they are in love with Prado they will resign him.

    They had a shot at Baez to fill that slot.

    This just makes that Dempster for Delgado deal all that much more hurtful.

    So we could've made Ryan Dempster into Justin Upton?

    (I figured I'd want to be the first to say that lol)
