Will Justin Upton be starting for the dbacks?

Postby horatio » Mon Mar 17, 2008 12:10 pm

I grabbed him as a late possibility for 20/20 but nobody drafted Polanco and I'm seriously thinking about swapping the two. I've got a pretty good 2b already so that's why it's not a no brainer at this point.

Everything i've seen or heard says he has an everyday job with the Diamondbacks.

All signs are pointing towards him being the starting CF in Arizona.

yeah I checked out the dbacks roster and it really doesn't look like there's much standing in his way. thanks for the responses, I"m still at a crossroads so if anyone feels inclined to tell me I'm crazy for considering letting Justin Upton go for Polanco that would be great.

Interesting. I had originally thought that, but a week or two ago, I saw him listed at CF on some depth charts; only to now see again that CBY is at CF and Upton at RF. Bizarre.

yea they are playing him in RF all season this year.... dont be surprised if he coasts to a 15/15 20/20 type season this year with about a .260-.270ish average....

I'm wondering about Carlos Quentin. Is he going to be more of a fill-in every now and then (like Andre Ethier for the Dodgers)? If Upton is starting, great news for us Upton owners who had taken him with a late round flier. ;-D
