    ARI Agrees to Trade Justin Upton to SEA; Upton Says No, Uses NTC

    http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/blog/sc...mer-in-arizona

    That he only has 4 teams in his NTC, and they tried to deal him to one anyway, is pretty funny.

    Upton has four clubs included on a very limited no-trade clause, including the Mariners and Blue Jays.

    The deal would have sent three or four players back to Arizona, according to CBSSports.com sources. Included among those players would have been relievers Charlie Furbush and Stephen Pryor, minor-league shortstop Nick Franklin and, likely, one of three minor-league starting pitching prospects: Right-hander Taijuan Walker, lefty James Paxton or lefty Danny Hultzen.
    Looks like he's going some place very, very, very soon.

    Presumably he wants to play for a team with a shot at making the postseason some time soon.

    I'm actually planning on moving to Seattle after I'm done with college in a couple years. Nice city. Doesn't change the fact that the Mariners suck though.

    Towers has to be pissed, missing out on an overpay like that.

    It would be funny if he lost it and traded him to Houston for a bag of balls.

    1 of those 3 pitchers plus some pieces is not a huge reach for upton at all. if seattle offers upton an extension promise or something, he'll go there

    Nick Franklin is one of the top SS prospects in the game.

    It was reported it was Walker. Walker and Franklin is a really good start to the package, I think the DBacks could of asked for a slightly better 3rd piece but meh.

    I find it interesting that Upton has Boston but not NY on his NTC. It seems like players generally have both or neither.

    Boston is notorious for being a racist city.

    Very confusing to say the least. Seattle is one of the teams in his NTC. So why did the D-Backs spend so much time trying to work out a deal? Why did they waste Seattle's time? Why didn't they go to Upton first and ask him if he would even consider a trade to the Mariners?

    But now that the names of the players being offered have been made public, other teams have an idea of what it will take for them to land Upton.

    If you want Upton you gotta pay. If the Ms want fans and other players they're gonna need a franchise slugger and that's what he is. It's not like they raped the farm, there are more'

    I'm not sure about that. He has really dramatic home/road splits to the extent where you could argue he's a product of that park.

    Maybe. I think he's a future MVP candidate. We'll see. I'm pretty certain he's going to get traded anyway now. I was surprised to learn Boston is on his NTC.

    Oh and from what I read Paxton and Hultzon were not in the deal. So the Ms still had some major guys had this trade went through.

    The Arizona Diamondbacks are seriously discussing a trade of Justin Upton to the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night, according to sources.

    A deal to the Braves would unite Upton with his older brother, B.J. Upton, who signed as a free agent with Atlanta this winter.

    Done deal, Upton to ATL.
