If the Sox want to add a bat, there are some possibilities. The only problem I see is other teams are offering prospects, while we're probably offering an overpaid Gavin Floyd.
If the Sox want Upton, Hahn could try to get creative and trade for some of the prospects the Mariners were offering and then flip them back to the D'backs in a package. The D'backs obviously wanted some of those players and were willing to part with Upton to get them. Since the Sox don't have the prospects to get it done, perhaps we can trade for the prospects we need. Probably a pipe dream, but an outfield of Upton, De Aza, and Rios could be the best in the division.
