There aren't many teams that can give up that kind of package for Upton, If it was the M's I would take it to Miami and see how off it is for getting them to listen for Stanton.
I would hate to see Stanton go to the M's. I want to see him play half his games in a hitters ballpark. With them bringing the fences in at Safeco, it might play like Marlin's Park (is that the name of it?), but still not ideal. (How insane would it be if Stanton were a Rockie)
But I agree with the thought though. See what on top of that offer it would take to get Stanton. If it's only a couple of extra B prospects then the M's would be crazy not to do it. If it meant throwing in Hultzen on top of Walker, that might be a tougher pill to swallow.
