Default Anybody concerned with this latest trade rumor...

Tigers doing diligence on J Upton


It's just a rumor right now, but man Nicky C, Avisail, and Smyly just for Justin and a player TBD. That would hurt the just released Nick and Avisail chrome autos to be in a new uniform before Christmas. I really hope not.

IMO The Tigers will not trade Avisail, Castellanos would definitely be involved though

Just recently came out that Kevin Towers doesn't think he will move Upton this offseason though.

If I'm the Tigers I wouldn't do it. Too much to give up for a guy who still isn't that proven as a consistently elite player.

Tigers look to be in the drivers seat for Upton now

Quote:
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that the Rangers are unwilling to trade either Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar for Justin Upton.
As Heyman notes, that makes a trade "very unlikely." The Rangers and D'Backs have been viewed as obvious potential trade partners since the Rangers want outfield help and the D'Backs are looking for a shortstop or third baseman in exchange for Upton. But, it sounds like Arizona is going to have to look elsewhere.

Want Upton, but the price is too high. They can have Castellanos, Porcello, Boesch, and I don't know...Albuquerque. We lose Smyly, then we HAVE to sign Sanchez.

That price seems insanely high, IMO..

I think it is just a starting point by Arizona for negotiation, there is no way they will get that much for Upton now, IMO.

Towers is no dummy, he knows if he leaks an offer out there like that then some club might try and in with a similar offer that he will snatch up, knowing the Tigers offer was just a fluke.
