Meetings update: Nats say nothing new on Upton
In the absence of any new rumors and a decision by Albetr Pujols, there has been some renewed chatter today about the Nationals long-standing interest in Rays CF B.J. Upton.
It created enough of a buzz that even people in Upton's camp were wondering what was going on, as FoxSports reported the teams had had "recent talks" about Upton.
But Nats GM Mike Rizzo put most of that speculation to rest this afternoon by telling Washington reporters, "I don't think anything has changed on that front.''
When they have talked, the takeaway seems to be the same, the Nats don't want to give up enough and/of the Rays want too much.
