08:14 AM ET 11.19 | Well, so much for fans who had hoped Justin Upton would upgrade their outfield this offseason. [Upton] has a 90 percent chance of being with the Diamondbacks when spring training starts as things stand now, one Diamondbacks person estimated. Even so, the D-Backs are still open to listening to a deal for the multi-talented outfielder. So that percentage could change as the winter goes on. While not putting a precise number of Upton's chances to stay a D-Back, club owner Ken Kendrick told CBSSports.com, "I think there's a very high likelihood Justin will be in our starting outfield when we start the new season." ... GM Kevin Towers seeks a young shortstop and pitcher back in any potential Upton deal.

In other words, I guess nobody is stupid enough to give me the world for an over rated under achieving outfielder.
