Dbacks Swap Upton For Cash

In a surprise move Thursday evening, the Arizona Diamondbacks reportedly traded babyfaced rightfielder Justin Upton to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, for an undisclosed sum of cash.

Upton, whose athleticism has been said to reduce major league peers to comparative "little leaguers", was photographed Friday afternoon by mlb.com at a Dodgers pre-training camp workout.

Diamondback sources were unavailable for comment as of Friday evening, however it's presumed the impetus of the move was to relieve payroll pressures, set off by the lavish acquisition of Adam Laroche.

While this is funny, it is not quite as funny as the window I now have into the Dhack's lair of tabs open on his computer screen at any given moment.

Mapquest. Check. AZCent. Check. Bill James. TRAITOR!


Good times.

Jeff, the three tabs furnish me with direction, information and Guidance From Above.

RSBS just "makes me laugh" and currently lacks the gravitas to warrant induction into The Lair of Tabs. Like Allen said, perhaps it's time you zeroed in on a girlfriend. That might help.
