SnakeBytes: Upton Upton, Upton Upton Upton edition

Christian Petersen

The winter meetings have concluded and, inexplicably, Justin Upton is still a Diamondback. I was *assured* he was going to be traded for a weekend getaway tp Amsterdam West (as soon as Denver City Council put down the Funions and pass the name change). Oh, well. Here's a weekend round-up of bits and pieces.

Justin Upton

  • [FSAZ] Upton trade no certainty, but options aplenty - "If nothing happens and he is still in a Diamondback uniform, he is going to play hard and we’re all going to be fine," Hall said. "He knows it’s part of the game. He is so mature now compared to when he first entered the league. If this had happened back then, maybe he would react differently, but he handles it so well. It’s not an issue."
  • [AZ Central] Possible Upton destinations - Texas and Tampa are well known possibilities, but what about Boston, Detroit or even Pittsburgh?
  • [USA Today] On the Hunt: Dodgers pursue Torii - "The Rangers, who have All-Star Elvis Andrus at shortstop, tried to acquire Simmons simply to spin him off and trade him to the Arizona Diamondbacks for right fielder Justin Upton, a high-ranking official with the Rangers and Braves confirmed."
