I get that you don't think they'd take Leake--but what about Bailey/Cozart/Cingrani/Rodriguez?
If they think Cingrani is for real maybe.
Even for Olt, Andrus and Perez, Upton is still the best player in the deal by far. Olt looks like a six hole hitter or maybe a 5 hole on a bad team. He plays a scarce position at the moment so that gives him a little more value. Andrus is very good lead-off/role player who excels at a premium position. Perez is still a question mark. His AAA ERA is 4.86 in 176 IP. He's young and very prominsing and would be the reason the D-Backs would do it IMO, but he's not a sure thing or an established TOR starter as the article states.
Upton is still pretty young himself.
