A Possibility For Justin Upton?
It appears that the Red Sox have had multiple trade talks with the Arizona Diamondbacks over right fielder Justin Upton. In 2010, Upton went .273/17/69, but his best season was in 2009, when he made the All-Star Team and went .300/26/86. Other teams are making a shot for Justin Upton, most notably the Yankees. If the Red Sox were to get Upton, however, they might well have to give up Jacoby Ellsbury and Daniel Bard, at least that's what the D-Backs think. In any case, this won't be another deal where they trade a few prospects for Justin Upton. But if this works out, they will be a much better team in 2011.
