The enigma that is BJ Upton

For all the problems he has by making to many errors, after you see his highlights you understand why it's to tempting to leave him at SS. If you go and look at his July 3rd highlight, well ... people aren't supposed to make that throw ...

You hear so much bad about players in the minors sometimes that plays like that help remind you how good they really are. He will have a webgem a week after seeing that footage.

That is the thing with Upton, the hard plays are not hard for him. A huge majority of his errors come on two hoppers hit right to him, when he has plenty of time to think about the throw. I don't know how many times you have seen Upton play live, but it is regularly that he makes an absolutely great play. But about 5 minutes later, he will throw one in the stands with the catcher trying to run out a 2 hopper.
