BJ Upton will never make the bigs as a SS. He already has 9 errors this year.

If you need an SS, take Drew.

Supposedly, Upton is the better hitter and Drew allegedly has the same issues regarding "playing tough" as his brother. That said, until BJ gets his defensive issues straightened out, I think Drew has the more immediate upside and is more likely to stay at SS.

I like Drew as a better hitter however, Upton I think is a 5 tool player... Drew lacks the speed but, has better power etc. then Upton. That's how I feel anywys.

I agree ... Upton he has at least 20/20 potential. Drew will hit homeruns and get hurt often.

Upton is a better prospect (in very loose terms considering that elieable) because of his offensive potenial. However he probably eon't be able to stay at short. Errors are crudy measures of fielding, but you can't keep a guy in the middle infield who keeps screwing up the routine plays.

Upton might move to third or even center field (which could causes problems in th that already crowed situation).
