Confirmation That Braves Made Offer For Justin Upton

There has been a lot of Justin Upton news today as it relates to the Atlanta Braves. Will the Arizona Diamondbacks trade their star outfielder to Atlanta to be reunited with his brother B.J. Upton? First off, we got confirmation that indeed the two sides have been talking, even going as far as exchanging offers:

How fast could things move?

I'm not sure exactly what "sensitive" means, but it could have something to do with this comment by Rosenthal:

I'm going to speculate that this might have something to do with certain Braves players or prospects being off limits in any trade talks. It could also have something to do with the package of prospects that Atlanta is offering being significantly less than other packages (specifically the one offered by the Mariners, which had several top-25 prospects).

So the "sensitive" in the above tweet could refer to whether or not the D-Backs think they're being bamboozled. Remember how many times the Braves and Padres went back and forth when discussing Jake Peavy? The Padres GM then, Kevin Towers, is the D-Backs GM now, so that gives you some idea of the gulf that could exist between what the Braves are offering and what the D-Backs might want.

The Braves don't want to part with any of their key pieces, and that may now include Julio Teheran. He being the best prospect in the Braves system, and the Braves not wanting to deal him, could be a pretty sensitive topic, for both sides. Rosenthal provides some ideas about the prospects that could be included by the Braves:

Hopefully there will be more exciting developments to come...
