Looks like we're leading the pack for Justin Upton's services. Would be HUGE.
The Diamondbacks are considering a offer from Atlanta for outfielder Justin Upton.
What ATL lineup could look like with JUpton, if deal done: 3B Prado RF Heyward LF JUpton 1B Freeman CF BJ Upton C McCann 2B Uggla SS Simmons.
Up, Up and J-Hey!
Would be a pretty damn good outfield and would keep Prado at 3rd. Now if we can do something about Uggla (and his contract...)
Duck will be here any minute to hate on the Braves!
Fomerly known as Garnet&BlackAttack.
Best OF in Baseball
Only lacks a true speed lead off hitter. We could easily win the division with that roster along with the already solid pitching. It's really nice to see ATL making some real moves towards winning.
Read it is rumored that the Braves offered Julio Tehran, Nick Ahmed, Juan Francisco and Zeke Spruill for Upton.
Stellar D, 70+ steals, 70+ HRs...and 400+ Ks from the OF. (Exaggerated the Ks a bit)
Not complaining as it would be ideal given likely choices, but that's a crapload of Ks not even counting Uggla.

I'd take that deal...
I'd do that. I'd rather give up Delgado than Julio but it is what it is. I also like Juan as a bench bat. But we'd be keeping Gattis, JR Graham and Gilmarten. So can't complain too much.
I really like Juan Francisco. I think he will be a great hitter if given the chance. I would prefer not to give him up, but I would really like to have Justin Upton.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
I agree with the k's. worth it IMO.
I'd rather have Bourn than J. Upton. He is a true lead-off hitter, batting avg ~.300, stellar defense and will give you +40 steals.
J. Upton had a higher OBP last year, is good defender, an affordable contract, younger, and put up borderline MVP numbers a year ago.
Bourn is aging, more expensive, had a crummy second half.
I'd prefer J.Upton of the two as a player...like J. Upton better than his brother really.
Xm radio mentioned Tehran and gilmartin along with the ss and one other pitcher. Hope to keep gilmartin if Tehran goes.
That deal isn't as appealing to me.
I think Gilmartin will be a part of the deal, and maybe Gattis, but that's just my own speculation. Those two plus Ahmed and Teheran would be a lot, but Upton is one of the best in the business.
He's not worth all of that IMHO.
I think he's worth Julio/Gilmarten/Ahmed. Maybe even throw in another low level pitcher
It's always a crapshoot to trade highly regarded prospects but you never know what they will eventually become and you already know what Upton can do.
Elvis Andrus comes to mind...that one still stings...Adam Wainwright as well.
Yes, it's a crap shoot, but although I'd love to have Upton, he's not a guy that I'd pillage the farm for.
The difference is upton is around three more years and we can't be scared of the texeria trade forever.
What's the deal with Bourn? Do we have a shot to resign him/will we?
"You’re either a block-gobbler, a farmer, or you’re a damn hunter and playmaker."
Gonna be a tough sign. Very expensive. I don't think he is worth what he's gonna demand.

Teheran hasn't impressed me during his starts for the big league club.
Gilmartin is a lesser talented version of Minor.
Ahmed is behind Simmons plus we have a future star in Peraza in Rome
Hearing it could be Juan Francisco instead of Gilmartin. So Teheran, Francisco, Ahmed and lower prospect. Do it KT...
