    it still makes Prado difficult to trade. the team trading for him would have to work out some sort of an extension before they would be willing to give up anything of value for him. not saying its impossible, but AZ seems like they wouldnt risk losing upton for just 4-5 months of Prado and Delgado. Towers isnt a genius, but hes not a complete idiot. One has to think that they believe they have a real shot at signing him. Obviously if they are tanking at the deadline then it would have to be considered just like anyone on any team reaching the end of their contract.

    #Dbacks expect to sign new 3B Prado, a free agent after 2013, to long-term extension in the near future, source said. Only way deal was made

    Are you referring to Texas...if so don't believe anything they say.

    Id love to get Bourn on a 1 year deal because I think he will be more valuable than the 2nd round pick at the trade deadline. Though if he gets hurt or has a terrible 1st half, our team is screwed. Would our FO take that risk?

    I'll say this, Kevin Towers gets players that he wants and doesn't look back.

    That Braves OF is so ****ing good.

    Gotta wonder if the D-Backs will dangle Delgado and Skaggs. I'd love to get either of them.

    Depends on his price and I think even if Bourn had a bad year his reputation alone would make him valuable.

    they certainly have the depth to dangle either of those by July.

    How about Marmol and Sappelt for Porcello? They need a platoon partner for Dirks and Sappelt is good against LHP.

    Also depends if hes willing to take a 1 year deal to come to a non-contender. Though, I find it hard to believe you will find a single team outside of the top 10 draft slots willing to lose a first round pick over a 1 year deal.

    Will Sori now accept a trade to Baltimore as Kubel is not moving from AZ?
