Well, I have seen Upton play. Just twice, which isn't a lot, admittedly. But it was enough for me to begin to question the hype.
I've admitted it's nothing but a gut feeling. I was just curious if anybody else saw the same thing. Only time will tell.
Oh, and it's not that I'm down on all the over-hyped minor leaguers. I love Prince Fielder and I've been high on David Wright for ages. It's just a gut feeling, not even the "his fastball is too straight" that I suggested with Greinke. Maybe he strikes out too much, but that's going on memory.
Really, hybrid. I was just asking if anybody else had the same slight uneasiness with the amount of hype this kid is getting. To me, he'll be a Derek Jeter who doesn't hit for as high an average and doesn't date Mariah Carey. That's it.
