Well... seeing as how 2B is turning out to the be the thinnest position this year (at least from what I'm seeing), you must have another very good option to put there if you're playing Upton at 3B.
As for his performace through the rest of the year... I'm putting him about equal with Braun and Teahen. All three of them (barring injury) should end up finishing the season about equal, after you equalize the power numbers for the speed numbers.
Upton is on an up-and-coming team, surrounded with plenty of raw talent, but the guy is a human windmill. Eventually he's going to fall into a couple weeks where he stops making contact with the ball and has an extended slump. I'm just hoping it's not anytime soon. Until then, he's going to keep tearing it up.
