08:12 AM ET 10.04 | Kevin Towers makes no secret about his willingness to look for upgrades to Arizona's ball club, and he was recently asked about the future of Justin Upton. Towers: Right now, he's a Diamondback. That's not to say people aren't going to inquire about him as they have the last two years. It's always been my method of madness to be open-minded on everybody. Not just Justin, but anybody on our club. My job as a general manager is to not fall in love with players. ... It's probably going to be very difficult to move him. We've explored it the last couple of years and there wasn't a deal that presented itself that made sense, that we felt was going to make us better. We'll take the same approach this year.

Yeah I think the problem is that the rest of the league doesn't think as highly of Upton as Arizona does.

wise up: Who else will arizona throw in with upton. The times i watched Arizona play Uptyon was less than impressive. The Cubs or Houston ,Upton would be an upgrade, maybe Boston. Most playoff teams I doubt would be interested.
