You're clearly in need SBs so I would do it. I like Garza a bit better than Upton, but your pitching is really solid. And Upton is a good player so I don't think you'll regret it.

I am fine with that. You have a ton of pitching depth and Upton could be a very nice player for you. Right now I am liking what I am seeing with him and strikeouts. If he can get that under control his value will jump.
