    why don't you think so? can't read the ball well or something? its certainly not his speed, glove or arm

      How much longer could Upton play centerfield? He looks like he's going to get even bigger unlike his brother. My only problem with trading 2 top 10 prospects for him is that Upton is like a prospect himself. Except he already has 3 years service time and is going to be paid a lot in two years. He also took a step back last year. If you're a team with 2 top 10 prosects or even 2 top 20 prospects, you're better off holding onto them. And getting production, and probably cheaper production, out of them.

      • Austine Romine has 122 hits the last 3 years over 3 levels of the minors. Funny how numbers work out sometimes.

        • If Towers trades Upton away I will lose all faith in him actually being a respectable GM. Upton is the center of the D'Backs core at a young age with a great contract. You don't trade him.

          And I don't like trading Scottie Allen for Miranda either. Allen had decent numbers in South Bend last year as a 19 year old and has good stuff. This will probably turn out to be a horrible move in a few years.

                I think they have already. I know Cano got one.

                • Rangers signed Barrett Loux. Not a bad signing if he proves healthy.

                  • Does Felix Doubront project more of a reliever or as a starter in the majors? Keith Law said that the Pirates would be a great fit for him, and the BoSox seem to want to trade him.

                    • Pirates DFA Zach Duke, Delwyn Young, and Andy LaRoche. I'm somewhat sad to see DY go. He was a good bat off the bench.

                        Probably just a numbers crunch. Yesterday you had to protect guys from Rule 5 so they probably needed the 40 man roster spots. Who did you protect?

                          I expected those three to leave, but not at this moment. We protected Michael Crotta, Tony Watson, Kyle McPhearson, Danny Moskos, and Jeff Locke.

                            If he can continue to improve his breaking ball, then a starter.

                              His velocity is pretty average and he had a bump coming out of the pen this year. I like him more as a bullpen guy, but they'll be people who think he can start. His curve is NASTY when he can locate it, but he has a hard time doing that sometimes.

                              • Ha. Braves sold Cody Johnson to the Yanks. Guy has about as much power potential as anyone in the game...too bad his strikeout numbers are some of the worst minor league baseball has ever seen. And they assigned him to AAA. Freaking crazy, I dont see him hitting that pitching at all.

                                Enjoy the occassional 480 footer and daily 3 strikeout performances.

                                Thanks BoneKrusher^
