The word is that the pirates are close to acquiring Justin Upton (apparently the deal would be centered around Starling Marte).

Would that make Upton more enticing as a trade target?

I would also stand pat...Upton is too inconsistent, Crawford is still good as long as he stays healthy.

Adding Wainwright makes this a steal imo.

Wainwrights xFIP is as good as Hamels, around 3.
He has had bad luck in babip, strand rate, hr/fb ratio.

Crawford is a overrated bum.

I take this deal now, before the guy realizes how good Wainwright has been, not his era.

I'm currently dealing with Hanson being awful, so would doing this deal make my pitching staff a headache?
