Justin Upton has no desire to be traded
The right fielder, who entered the season as an MVP candidate and has entered the All-Star break as a disappointment, is hitting .273 and has just seven home runs and 37 RBI.
His struggles have led D-backs fans to boo the 24-year-old, and now reports are the team is willing to trade the guy who used to be the franchise's cornerstone.
According to Arizona Sports 620's John Gambadoro, that's not something the former top overall pick is hoping for.
Justin Upton tells me he has no interest in being traded, he wants to stay in Arizona and be a Diamondback!!!— John Gambadoro (@Gambo620) July 10, 2012
While some D-backs fans have voiced their displeasure over Upton's performance this year, the majority seem to be against the idea of a trade.
And, it seems, they are not alone.
