Justin Upton for ????

Postby CDAG02 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 5:23 pm

What kind of SP should I target with Justin Upton? I've been offered Gio Gonzalez straight up for him but feel like I could get more. The owner who offered that would also be willing to deal Cliff Lee for Upton....is it worth it?

The Upton for Gio Gonzalez offer is still on the table. Should I pull the trigger? With Upton's struggles this year, not sure if I could get more.

Upton has been solid lately, but it looks like you can use the arm and already have a start studded OF. I would do this.

I think you can get more, Upton still has one of the highest cielings in the majors. Try for Weaver or Greinke. In this situation, you can start at the top and work down until you get your guy. So offer for Verlander, then Kershaw, etc.

I agree with the other posters that you can afford to trade Upton for a SP. However, I think you can do better than Gio Gonzalez.

No deal for me. I think you are buying Gio at his all-time high and I don't see him being this good all year and selling Upton at an all-time low and expect him to be much better going forward.
