Peter Gammons just sent out this tweet:
If you don't believe the multi-team Upton trade talk, Wednesday night a Rangers official called an Astros officisl and said, "we got Upton."— Peter Gammons (@pgammo) December 7, 2012
So Gammons says a Ranger official told an Astro official
last Wednesday night that they've acquired Justin Upton.
Gammons carries weight on these things.
I will update this as more news comes available. And I'm going to go put "Elvis Andrus is a Ranger 4ever" on my vision board right now.
UPDATE -- Oh, yeah, today's Friday, not Thursday. Which means the comment was made two nights ago, not last night.
UPDATE II -- From Ben Rogers:
WAIT! Source just called who talked to Gammons, who said: "They thought they had him, but it unraveled." Not sure why he didn't tweet that— Ben Rogers (@BenRogers) December 7, 2012
False alarm. Sorry everyono. Go about your business.
