Day Two of Winter Meetings Quieter for D’backs

By Scott Allen

The Arizona Diamondbacks weren’t nearly as noisy on day two of the Major League Baseball Winter Meetings as they were on day one when they made a plethora of moves.  Today, no official moves were made, although rumors continue to swirl.

Word is Justin Upton may be staying.  The D’backs just wanted too much and I don’t blame them.  It has been reported not to rule out anything, but there is a strong chance that Upton will be here for years to come.

I also read from azcentral.com that Brandon Allen may be shopped around thanks to the acquisition of Juan Miranda a couple of weeks ago.  Personally I would like to give Allen just a little longer more to develop unless they think there is a decent market return for him.

We’ll see what day three brings tomorrow.  Possibly another reliever?  I wouldn’t be surprised.
