Default Another Upton to Atlanta...and yeah, not Katie!

B. Olney tweeting talks are back on with the D'Backs and they are heavily considering.

I hope the Braves can pull this off!

If not Katie then it shouldn't be big news In all seriousness though if the Braves land him, there is no telling the damage that team could do this season!!

I would assume Simmons + more, wouldn't get ahead of yourself though, these Upton negotiations have a thing of falling apart

I was afraid of that. I hope they can pull off a deal that doesn't include Simmons.

Yeah I doubt that Simmons will be a part of the trade. I assume it will be Teheran, Gilmartin, Pastornicky, and Gattis (or something like that).

All 3 Alou brothers played together

They were the first set of three siblings to play together in the same outfield (on September 15).[4] and all bat in the same half-inning in the majors (September 10),[5] accomplishing both with the Giants in 1963. Matty had been teammates with Felipe during the prior three campaigns, and would do likewise with Jesús for the following two. Matty and Felipe later reunited with the Yankees in 1973.[6]

I have a hard time believing that they would move Simmons as well, he's the SS of the future. I think the prospects you have listed is probably almost exactly what they have offered, minus Pastornicky, they probably put in Ahmed instead of Pnicky. I really hope they can get JUp, he'd be perfect in LF and think of that OF with him! WOW!!

No way in hell we give up Simmons. Wren just doesn't give away our cheap, great talent. This isn't the Yankees we're talking about. Heyward / Upton / Upton sounds like a damn good outfield to me.

This is old news, been talks between the D-Backs and the Braves about Upton for the last year and I have stayed up to date with it the entire time. This thread pizzed me off, I read the title and thought the deal had went through finally. I was so excited. Damnit.

Anyway to all those wondering what they would give up, Wren has said NO about Simmons, he will not trade him, Towers already made an offer of Upton for Simmons and turned it down. I have been starting to think Wren may trade Prado after this whole arbitration price incident and I would not be willing to make that trade. Anyway, basically right now Wren is just waiting for Towers to lower his asking price.

The DBacks got Didi in the Bauer deal, they arent looking for a SS now.

Teheran would be the main piece, probably 3-4 more.

There is a definite match here though

Honestly, Teheran has been underwhelming recently.

Teheran pitched very well during Winter League now that he isn't trying to change his mechanics anymore. If a deal goes down chances are very good Teheran will be included in the deal, not sure if Wren is willing to trade him however. The problem is that, until Beachy is back, Teheran is projected to be the Braves #5 starter and if he is traded then it would be Randal Delgado and he is a pretty crappy pitcher in my opinion. Did terrible last season and he can't even get a win in Winter League, he was like 0-4 with a 5+ ERA or something.

However, I would be willing to let Teheran go for Upton because Upton has future MVP type potential, 5 tool player.

Yeah, Upton is the only player I would (hesitantly) give Teheran up for. I really hope Wren can sell Towers on someone else, but I have a feeling that Upton will stay in Arizona if Teheran is off limits.

I completely agree. In order for Wren to even somewhat match the type of offer the Mariners put up for Upton, Teheran would have to be included. Also, Upton is the only player I'd be willing to give Teheran up for as well. He has tremendous potential but you have to be willing to give a lot up for someone like Justin Upton

It is Gattis, Teheran, and another pitcher possibly Delgado. This could happen tomorrow as its the best AZ has gotten outside of the Seattle offer.
