Definitely don't like any of those. Upton is an absolute stud. I don't see how you'd replace his speed in your lineup? Remember he was ranked 16th overall preseason right behind guys like Teixeira. Would you trade Teixeira for any of those offers? The big tendency is to undervalue guys unless they bash tons of home runs, hit for high average, and drive in runs.

Scarcity is what it's all about. How many guys are capable of stealing 50 bases, hitting 20 home runs, and batting .280-.290? Very few. Upton has started very slowly but it is possible that he'll go on that sort of a pace from here on out (he already has for the past week or so).

The only trades I could see you making would be to upgrade at either 2nd or 3rd base, preferably 2nd. But I highly doubt there is a package you'd be able to put together to get Kinsler or Utley; maybe Phillips but I'd never give up BJ Upton for him. Hold tight, my friend.
