Hype is fun and Upton is worth taking a flier on but I wouldn't bank on him outperforming Kaz or Reyes this year. Despite how much talent the kid might have, first stints in the bigs are historically bad no matter how much talent a player has. Claim him and hope for the best but don't expect anything from him. The same holds true for Wright, etc.

True, true. My SS position has been so bad this year, though, that I hold out a lot of hope. ;-)

The thing about Kaz is that you have to factor in his ankle injury (i guess the same goes with Reyes injury). I have Kaz on my team, and I am going to give it two more games to see how Kaz performs with his ankel injury and how BJ hits major league pitching.

Combined the 4 threads about Upton being a DH and what his value is.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
