Since Upton is untouchable as Eliot Ness, I have to believe that Upton is on the verge of a callup. The Diamondbacks are likely to get as much production out of Upton as they are from anyone they could reasonably acquire, including Jermaine Dye. I'll leave it to Kevin to tell you why Upton's this special, but he is. One other factor that may play into this is that manager Brett Butler, who the organization says was a phenomenal influence on Upton, is unlikely to return to the team this season after suffering a mild stroke.
Get ready to use those #1 waiver priorities...
