Re: Justin Upton...again
Were I Arizona, I'd ask for Cozart and Frazier, on top of Corcino/ Cingrani and Joseph/ Hoover.
Were I the Reds, I'd probably be tempted to say yes to that, though it'd hurt. A bunch.
The first rule to building a team is to have league average or better at each spot.
The second rule is to have/ find/ be willing to pay for as many difference-makers as payroll allows.
You'd be breaking the first rule, but putting Upton between Votto and Bruce is really, really hard to pass up.
