Justin Upton. But i think that Upton will have a better career than Maybin, Butler, Bruce, Longoria, Pence, and just about every other top position prospect.

Upton by far....

no dis to Wood who i think will mirror Troy Glaus career, but Upton is in another field.

i think Upton has the potential to be the best prospect of any hitter however i am still undecided if he will eclipse Butler, Maybin, Longoria and crew... we'll see though all those prospects are elite in my eyes.

Wood is going to be a .270 - .280 Career Hitter...not a .250 like Glaus. He has also been called back up which is nice.

Upton no doubt. Wood's Ks are worrisome.

His swing isnt as long as Glaus' swing. He makes hard contact with a fairly small frame. As his frame increases in size his swing will be able to be even more compact and still create power. I dont have any allusions of him being a .300+ hitter, but I think in his prime he will be hitting .280 or so with unreal power numbers. There are few players in the majors right now that have his kind of power at his size. I could see him posted similar lines to an Alfonso Soriano with about half the steals. 40/20 perhaps...
