Justin Upton's agent told the Diamondbacks front office in October that a "trade might be best for everyone."

Upton also asked that the "Uptown" sign at Chase Field be taken down. The D'Backs are refusing to call it a trade request, but it quite clearly was. Upton got his wish on Thursday afternoon as part of a seven-player swap and will team up with brother B.J. in Atlanta this summer. They both hold a huge amount of fantasy potential.
