Are you F'ing Kidding me Ruben? I like Upton and all but....OMFGSMH!!! - Drew Hallowell
Boston is in talks with Shane Victorino on a three year $38mm deal and Josh Hamilton is talking to the Rangers about a four year pact. Also, the Cliff Lee rumors are back.
If Victorino signs with Boston, that could make it easier for them to trade Jacoby Ellsbury.
Now you know why the picture is of Cliff Lee.
UPDATE: Not so fast? Diamondbacks' beat writer Nick Piecoro:
Dbacks source tells me the Upton/Lee stuff "hasn't been discussed" and is "off base."— Nick Piecoro (@nickpiecoro) December 4, 2012
UPDATE UPDATE: Ruben Amaro, Jr. Himself kills the rumor:
Ruben Amaro with a strong denial of the Lee-Upton report. "I don't comment on rumors but that one is Absolutely and unequivocally false."— High Cheese (@HighCheese) December 4, 2012
