Re: Upton to Braves
The Braves win this, hands down. They trade four mid-level prospects and a guy who probably isn't worth what he'll be making for the one year he has left before free agency for two cost-controlled, upper-tier solutions at two positions of need.
Arizona management did poorly for themselves leading up to this. Instead of quieting down the drama and shipping him to teams looking to contend early on, they waited until the main vacancies were filled and made it clearly known that they were willing to overpay to get him out of there. It's been a rough offseason out there.
