I'm still leaning towards Gordon as being the closest to the majors and playing the position I need. No chance Drew gets moved to 3B?
Upton is not seen as 4 years away, he is one of the most polished/talented H.S. kids in recent years. Seeing as how B.J. flew through the minors, I wouldn't put it past Justin to do close to the same. I'd personally choose Justin if I had the choice, that being said he could move to the OF.
Gordon IMO would be the best pick in terms of upside and making it quickly to the majors. I worry about Drew, his make up and ability to stay healthy are big factors just like his brother. Also if Drew went to 3B he wouldn't put up the power numbers for that position anyways, but it's doubtful he would move there.
So in your case, Gordon looks to be the best option.
