Re: Justin Upton Vetos Trade to Seattle Mariners
The DBacks soured on Upton that is for sure. The big question is which Justin Upton are you getting? The 141 OPS+ guy of 2011 or the 107 OPS+ guy of 2012?
I kinda like this deal from the DBacks side. I think Prado is an under rated player who can play all over and knows how to find 1b. You have the upside of a 22 year old Delgado along with the minor league players that I don't know enough about.
I am interested to see how this works out for the Braves. Borne and Prado were prototypical #1 and #2 hitters. Now they have a bunch of guys who look like 5 hole hitters. May be a boom or bust lineup next year for the Braves.
