Poll: Who Would You Rather Have?

Although the Padres haven’t made any big moves this off-season, the team finds itself this week at the center of the biggest trade rumors that the sport has to offer.

First there were rumors of a possible Giancarlo Stanton trade to the Padres, then MLBTraderumors reveals the Padres and Diamondbacks have discussed a Chase Headley-Justin Upton swap.

Both Stanton or Upton would be a huge get for the Padres (depending on who they give up) and although there seems to be no life to these rumors I ask you, the fan, if you could just have one of these two prolific players who would it be Stanton or Upton?

You can have one.

For me,  it is a toss up. I keep going back and fourth on who I want.

You can’t go wrong with either guy, that is why I am asking you, the fan, to make the decision for me.

Here are Stanton’s combined offensive stats from 2010-2012.
