Bingo, no trade clauses aren't what they seem for the top players.
Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox are expected to pursue a trade for Justin Upton.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reported earlier Wednesday that, despite previous comments from their owner to the contrary, the D'Backs will shop Upton this offseason. The Red Sox are on the outfielder's no-trade list, but Silverman's source says that will not keep Boston from going after him. The Rangers would also make sense as a trade partner, with Rosenthal speculating that they could deal Elvis Andrus for Upton.
