You Orioles fans are cute. Get one good year in you and suddenly baseball began in 2012.
Justin Upton is one of the 5 most talented OFers in major league baseball and you'd be giving up a nice starting pitcher and a defensively limited prospect who's never shown a thing above AA and is all of one year younger than the 2-time All-star with over 100 career HRs and a top 5 MVP finish.
That's why the Rangers would do this deal.
That's what I like to call... BOOM. Roasted.
Smith is Cassel. Cassel is Grbac. Grbac is Bono. Smith is a bum! We traded for a bum!
