"Bradley, Jr. and J. Upton will be a solid long term match for many years to come"
"Look at Kemp. That is the player Upton should easily become over the next few seasons"
Many years to come huh? I guess if you consider only 3 years as many, then yeah, I guess so. Upton will be leaving for FA after 2015 right in his prime, or as Moon says, right about the time he becomes Matt Kemp.
I apologize for the sarcasm, but tell me how you build a team around a guy that will be gone in 3 years? You dont. You build a team around a Middlebrooks, or a Pedey, or a Lester. A guy that will be here for at least 6 years and possibly longer. Not for a guy that will surely follow the money in 3 years...
If we are truely looking toward the future, then giving up the prospects it will take to get this guy will surely be sacrificing that to an extent.
Im sure theres nothing to worry about anyway. There are probably more teams out there that would part with better prospects than we would part with to get the services of the Great J. Upton for 3 years.
