And the D-Backs want to trade away Upton, not Parra.
bunch of stuff about not spending money to me sounds like typical SSS/LANC blind following......

Just kidding
 

I present to you awesome trade speculation from some unreliable source #1 for the 2012 Hot Stove Season! http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2012/10/diamondbacks-weighing-trade-of-kubel-or-parra.html

I'd actually rather have Upton anyway.  On maybe a four year deal I think he nets us just enough insurance until one of the youngins down on the farm can take over full time.  My bet is on Goodwin by 2015 (give him a full year at AA next year and a full year at AAA in 2014 and he should be ready) and when that happens, maybe you consider trading Upton.  I am a believer that a change of scenery will do him well and I know he isn't a lead off guy and strikes out a lot, but some of that has to come from the inefficient Rays lineup.  Some of his biggest potential bad tendencies can be mirrored over by placing him in a better lineup.
