Justin Upton traded to Atlanta

16 posts in this topic

along with 3B Chris Johnson for Martin Prado, P Randall Delgado, and 3 prospects. Consensus seems to be that this was close to a hijacking for Atlanta.

I went to the first ever D back game and I have been a fan for their entire existence.I am furious over this. Just a horrible ####### trade. I am happy for Justin. it has to be pretty cool to be playing in an MLB out field with your brother. I hope he goes on to do all the great things we feel he is capable of.Towers can go #### him self.He traded Upton, Bauer, Cahill, Young and we have Prado to show for it? WTF?????

Delgado was a good acquisition for the Diamondbacks, but for Upton, they should've gotten Teheran too.

Rumor is they are using Nick Ahmed to get Rick Porcello from Detroit.I wasn't a fan of the Bauer deal, but they got a great pitching prospect and an underrated player in Prado.It is obvious Gibson/Towers want high character players, and want to jettison players that didn't buy into the team. I actually think they have a pretty solid team going into next year.

Fixed, and I'm not thrilled about it as a Tiger fan. Nick played high A ball last year.....yippee!

ETA: This looks like a rumor that will go nowhere. Arizona is happy with their pitching, per Towers.

Please review stuff before you post itHe traded FOR CahillThe DBacks have Prado for the ML roster and some pretty good prospects in Gregorius, Delgado, and Ahmed along with some minor pieces for the roster (Sipp who is very good against LH batters and Pennington who should be the backup for SS/2B and not starting)

Look who's douching up the baseball forum again. He already acknowledged that he made the mistake. Is there some reason why you feel the need to rub it in?
