Should We Unite the Upton Brothers?

As we proceed into 2011 the Rays will see a very different roster, but the same needs still remain that have plagued this team the past several seasons. I'm speaking about the need for a RH bat, preferably one with power. The answer may lie in BJ's little brother Justin

 

Justin Upton at 23 years old has a career 824 OPS along with a 112 OPS+. He has 60 HR in his short MLB career. He is currently signed to a 6/$50 million dollar deal, that really doesn't get expensive until 2014. And the bonus with him is adding him would certainly entice BJ to listen to a multi year deal. Justin is also a good base stealer and a plus glove in the OF

 

Now if you're with me so far, what does it take to get him? How about Desmond Jennings, Alex Cobb and Alex Torres, or some other combo of three fairly high prospects?
