In response to Softlaw1's comment:
It would take Ellsbury and his draft compensation, flipped to a third team, plus Buchholz, plus Barnes and Bogaerts and Brentz.
J. Upton, coming off a bad year, is a much better value trade market acquisition.
Buying low : usually a good idea.
why give up your top prospects to get 3 years of J Upton when you can give up a few more prospects and get 6 years of stanton (who is MUCH better than Bad attitude upton)
to the point of the OP, it would take all of our top prospects plus all of our expendable assests flipped to a 3rd team for prospects and all of them too.
but it would be worth it. stanton is the real deal. and cost controlled. also under team control for 6 years. very unlikely he gets traded but you never know... crazier things have happened
Because I went to the Patriots game last night. Due to exhaustion, I'm in "skim over posts and make a semi-relevant snarky comment" mode. Just trying to survive the last half hour at work.
I dont even remember making the comment that you are referrencing.
