I can see both Hermida and Young with 15/15 seasons, and being young they certainly have the upside for more. With that said I think Upton should see a decent amount of ab's this season as a super-utl guy, aroud 400 or so, and he's a good option for SB. Bailey I absolutely love, and think he will be up for good by midseason...

Hmm its tough, if you need pitching I'd do it, but it is a lot to give up as Hermida could have a Rios type of breakout...

Chris Young is perhaps the most underrated top prospect out there. Hermida and Young, and that's not even CLOSE.

Hermida and Young are great prospects, but so are Bailey and Upton. Upton probably has the biggest upside of anyone in the group, and Bailey is rare on a list of great pitching prospects. (being Bailey and Hughes, maybe Lincecum) But there are plenty of OF prospects at the top.

Well that is a tough trade to make. Young pitchers can be risky, even the best of them. Hermida is still a very good player and should do well now that he is healthy. Upton has no real defensive spot and ,ay struggle to get atbats, he has also regressed some with the bat and didn't show his power stroke last year. I think i would keep Young and Hermida, it being the less risky pair.

Not that tough of a decision for me. I'd go with Bailey and Upton immediately. Young may have some speed and power, but he won't hit for a high avg. Hermida could be a solid .300 hitter, but Upton's ceiling could make him a perennial all star. I'm not completely sold on Bailey being a stud just yet, since he basically threw heat past AA players and hasn't yet learned how to pitch.
