I agree and wasn't implying the D'backs had any interest in Olt.
The Rangers offered Olt to Atlanta to acquire a young SS that they could package in a deal for Upton. My first choice would be for the Reds to get Upton. As a backup in case they couldn't agree to a deal, would be for the Reds to ship one of our young SS to Texas for Olt. Reds could keep Olt (moving Frazier to LF), and the Rangers could in turn package the young SS along with whatever other pieces they could to get Upton.
