I just don't think you need to do that deal. Your OF is already very strong and the guys you have in at OF are outperforming upton. I really think this move would be unnecessary and would not improve your team IMO.

Help?

Agreed. Doesn't make sense for you.

Man, this is tough. I know it doesn't make a ton of sense on paper, but I have LONG pursued Justin Upton from this owner ... like, for several years. So, anyone think there's a way to justify it?

If you want to really get Upton, do it.

Your staff isn't going to take that big of a hit, it's pretty stacked. Upton is nice upgrade over Carl at this point.

This is pretty interesting, for this season it looks like Hamels might be staying in Philly and the phils have not been playing well, but Upton it looks like could be on the move, he needs a change of scenery from Arizona, I could see upton having a big second half especially if he gets traded. So basically I don't really see any problems making the move if you want Upton, your team is already stacked so it shouldnt make too much of a difference.

Help me out

If you think Upton gets traded, I'd do it...if not, then I am unsure....Bats are worth more normally...so that plays a role too.

I would take Upton
i just think if Hamels goes to AL or Texas, his numbers will take a hit.
Upton has struggled, but could take off at any point.
