Because Justin Upton is still only 25 years old and is going to be making the same amount of money as Shane Victorino over the next 3 seasons.
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 about 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.
All the reports i see don't have the Royals in this 4 way deal. Jon Heymen said KC early but has since backed off that.
