Might be even better if I drink Nyquil every night but down it 16 to 30 minutes BEFORE we hit record

More like, what are you at to keep you going those long, late hours (sniffle sniffle)

I find it a fascinating part of the game these days how ballpark influences where players want to go so that their numbers are inflated(or deflated for pitchers). Come contract time, look at the numbers.

It makes sense of course.

I would think that Upton HAS to go now. It's not a healthy environment for a player, especially a franchise type player, for the team that owns his rights to be "bad-mouthing" his abilities.

Upton though, comes across to me has a guy who can handle it. He will play for his teammates(not the team) while he remains with the snakes... if he indeed does. If they don't budge on the type of package they want, he will be hard to move.

Which teams are on his "destination wish list" guys?

Are any of these teams able to come up with a package with similar pieces?
