Sure it can be arguable about avg/power right now, but I still think Upton has the edge. I also think a good amount of people read to much in his stats last year at High A, a lot like Wood.
5 tool ability is not important in fantasy, as long as you don't count defensive stats in your fantasy league. Not sure why you would even argue that point. I already stated Upton would have the definite edge on the basepaths.
So you discount what Butler did last year, but then you also say that the fact Upton has proved nothing in the minors has no bearing on his value as a prospect. Doesn't make much sense to me.
