The trade offer stuff should just go in another forum, otherwise it becomes meandering threadjacking.

In redraft leagues, the young Upton is a good top OF to get but gambling on a major breakout could go either way. If not him this year, then some other young 20 something will go off. It's the lottery. As someone said earlier, he'll do very well in the future. If one can sell him on potential to get more for their money, then it's probably worth it. Who knows when that future will come.

He's taking fewer walks this year (BB%:9%, 2010: 11.2%) but he's also striking out less (K%: 21.2%, 2010: 30.7%). His babipity sits at .256, which implies at least some regression to career .334 levels. He's working things out right in front of us, slowly. Still raw, as his recent slump has shown him visibly frustrated. Only 2 HR on the road so far... But he's working through it all. If it clicks...

If it clicks for him, we're talking electricity. There are few players out there who post more than Upton, and that's before considering his imminent upside. IMHO a trade offering for Upton needs to fill way more than the hole he'd leave behind. I'm at least waiting until the weather heats up and the balls start flying.

Huge night, 5-5, 3 runs, 3 RBI, HR and a SB, giving him 5 steals in his last 7 games. Well on his way to 20/20 and beyond.
