While Upton was rumored to be available for the right price (= high price), saying the DBacks "wanted to get rid
of Upton" seems a little too emphatic. If they wanted to get rid of him why is he still there? If you want to get rid of the guy who finished 4th in the MVP balloting there would be plenty of takers. Floating a guy's name on the market to see what sort of mega-haul you could get for him is a lot different than wanting to get rid of him. If the DBacks trade Justin Upton they will get top-notch talent in return.
