Justin Upton rejects trade to the Mariners. www.mlbtraderumors.com
So you're telling me there's a chance...
Apparently the offer was Nick Franklin, two relievers, and one of their top pitching prospects (Hultzen, Walker, or Paxton)
Roughly the Reds equivalent of DiDi Gregorius, JJ Hoover, Sam LeCure, and one of our top pitching prospects (Cingrani, Corcino, or Stephenson) - most likely Stephenson.
I'm happy we went the route of Choo for a much lower price, but I'd sure as heck be happy to revisit this next offseason.
One year closer to free agency, maybe Upton could be had for Corcino or Cingrani + Leake and a reliever.
