Update: Upton's No Trade List
On Saturday, I reported (via Ken Rosenthal), that the four teams named on Justin Upton's no trade list were the A's, Tigers, Royals, and Indians. Well, it turns out that report was partially incorrect. Earlier today, Rosenthal corrected his report (via tweet). Apparently, it's the Mariners, not the Indians, that are on the list. This is rather unfortunate for the Mariners as they've been reported to be among Upton's most ardent suitors. I'm not 100% sure what he has against Mariners, although it may have something to do with Safeco Field's ability to punish right handed power hitters (see Adrian Beltre).
