Ms fans.... "I'm tired of waiting".... "wait don't trade our future to win"
We can't have it both ways. Me personally I like the deal. Gives up somedecent prospects but maintains the overall integrity of the farm (ie not trading two of the big 3) and brings in a very good hitter.
However, I'm fine waiting one more year for every name in this proposed trade to get a call up. Its taking some time but I could see this team becoming a Twins esque organization in a year or two, all home grown products. (Including taking in some of their players like Jason Kubel)
Either way Uptons choice now. The NTC is there to give Upton some leverage. While many see it as a reflection of @Mariners offensive ineptitude" he also had the Red Sox and Jays on there. Pretty good parks to hit and really good offensive teams. Not sure Upton is worth it all, but this isn't quite like the Bedard deal. Bedard was a pitcher, couldn't play everyday. Jones impact completely outshone him in the end
Just my thoughts. Atleast there is movement.. don't think we are done with this either way
