You wouldn't have to add much at all to Ellsbury to get Upton. But that is beside the point, because the Diamondbacks would not be looking for another outfielder.
Arizona is looking for SS/3B, that's why I said we'd have to part with WMB or Bogaerts. Ellsbury is an injury risk, and didn't come close to his 2011 stats last season. If he had stayed healthy for the most part while with us I'd want an extension for him. Upton is a power bat which we could really use to protect Ortiz. We have JBJ who could possibly be ready to take over CF for the next 10 years by mid season.
