In response to Softlaw1's comment:
Why would the Red Sox trade Jacoby Ellsbury, a better player and better value, along with the farm to get Upton.
Some people are born stupid, others are ignorant.
Justin Upton, at age 25, has twice as many carerer HR as Ellspuff. Never played a season in front of Pedroia and AGon and Ortiz in Fenway, but has over 100 career RBI's more than Ellspuff. Since become an everyday MLB starter at age 21, J. Upton has never played less than 133 games ia season in his first four years, and has averaged over 150 games a season over the last two years.
Justin Upton and "bad attitude" is a racist bugaboo. He's a perfectionist and a hard worker who shows up for work. Ellsbury has a bad attidue in the most area, showing up for work.
J. Upton has a career OPS+ of 117
Ellspuff has a career OPS+ of 106
And for the idiot talking about value, J. Upton is on the 2013 books for what will likely be almost the exact same costs after Ellspuff gets a standard minimum years of service increase from arbitration or to avoid arbitration contract settlement.
Ellsbury will thankfully be a bad debt for another team in a matter of months, now, so acquiring J. Upton who is under contract for multi-year should be a priority. And now that Shane's been given an absurd contract, what Cherry is waiting on with his "Shane in RF" and Ellspuff and 23 million for 2013, he is without doubt incompetent.
Southpaux, knock it off. Tell the Board what contract offer you are making for "huge potential" for Ellsbury from 2014 et seq.
Better to put Ellbury and his draft compensation on the market for ATL or TX , aad add the prospectn to Webster or De La Rosa and add Brentz and add any other farm prospect except Barnes and Bogearts and Bradley, Jr. (Add Bogearts if other bids are better, unlikely)
Just the idiotic pile of nonsense/drivel I would expect from you, Softpuff.
