Atlanta Braves Making Another Run At Justin Upton

USA TODAY Sports

The on-again, off-again trade talks between the Braves and Diamondbacks about Justin Upton are on again.

Here we are again, my friends, with the rumor that will not end... this time it is ESPN scribe Buster Olney tweeting about how the Atlanta Braves are making a run at Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Justin Upton:

And also this:

ZOMG! We've heard this stuff before. I got excited then. I'm kind of excited now, but now I understand how hard this could be, and how many prospects the Braves would have to give up. But still... I do think it would be pretty awesome.

We'll have to see what develops this week. I guess we won't be able to take our eyes off Twitter for the next three days, since Friday seems to be a self-imposed deadline.

Strap in for the ride. And if a trade is reported, it better be real, I don't want any more of that Dempster business.
