The Padres are “all over” Justin Upton

Ken Rosenthal reports that the San Diego Padres are “all over” Justin Upton, and speculates what it might get to pry him away from the Braves and to put him in the outfield with Matt Kemp.

He also, correctly, notes that adding Matt Kemp and Justin Upton does not a contender make. If they do take that course — and if they give the Braves the sort of return they want for Upton, which is probably a good, team-controlled pitcher — one has to wonder what in tarnation the Padres think they’re accomplishing.
