The blockbuster trade between the Toronto Blue Jays and Miami Marlins may still be pending, but it may set the tone for other trades that could go down this winter. Many MLB teams are looking to make a big-time acquisition, be it through trade or free agency, and this controversial deal could easily be the spark that starts everything.
Naturally, Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton is still on the block. After an off 2012, his name has popped up in various rumors. However, despite the fact that he is a five-tool player, Arizona's asking price may prove to be too high.
Thus, the question presents itself: Just how true are the rumors surrounding Upton?
Of course, the talented outfielder isn't the only name being thrown around. Separating rumors from fact is important as the hot stove starts to reach its boiling point.
