I'm guessing that might get it done.

They'd need to find a closer and another bullpen arm. A good bench bat, maybe two.
No way that gets it done. Leake is not a top of the rotation picther, Cozart is a non-star level position player and Stubbs is spot player/interchangeable part. Would you trade Jay Bruce for that? If you wouldn't be willing to deal Bruce for whatever package being proposed, chances are that the D-Backs wouldn't deal Upton for the same package,

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
