Re: Justin Upton...again
The point being, send whoever you got in the minors, you likely won't need them. Perhaps save Corcino if you wish to save money on Leake or Bailey.
Then by 2014-15-16 you've got countless other draft picks including this year's decent batch. We'd be set. I'd really hope Walt considers this with all he's got. Upton's salary will cause some chaffing with arb eligibles, but the reward would be worth it, I think. And payroll could sit around 100-115 million pretty easily if the Reds are contending every year.
