According to Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com, the Red Sox are on the "back burner" in trade talks for Justin Upton.
Another unspecified team made a strong push on Wednesday, according to Rosenthal, and roughly 15 teams have already expressed their interest. An official from another club told Rosenthal that the D-Backs want to "win" the trade and want four top prospects in exchange for Upton. The Diamondbacks have discussed three-team and possibly four-team trades, but if the Red Sox were to trade only their own players, they would likely have to part with some combination of Daniel Bard, top prospect right-hander Casey Kelly and outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Ryan Kalish. As of Wednesday night, Rosenthal reports that there was "little momentum" for a trade.
give Ellsbury, not Kelly or Bard. I like Kalish too...Ellsbury and Pap for Upton and a reliever. Upton isnt that
good that he requires a s**t ton of players
