Should the Braves chase Justin Upton?

According to ESPN's Buster Olney the Braves are a potential fit for Justin Upton.

The Diamondbacks seem to be more than willing to move the talented young outfielder, but since they could still win this year, they will want big league-ready talent to help immediately.

That's exactly why the Braves are a fit as a trading partner for Upton. Olney points out that the Braves could build a package starting with Martin Prado as well as pitching. The Braves will also have some extra cash available to spend next year with Chipper Jones retiring, Derek Lowe's last $10M coming off the books and Michael Bourn being a free agent.

This article takes a look at why the Braves should make a deal for Justin Upton and also why they shouldn't, followed by my own conclusion.
