I also have Phillips, and I love having him as my 2B, but I think Upton has the higher upside. IF - and it's a big IF - Upton can stay at 2B long term, I think he's the best non-Utley 2B over the next few years, followed closely by Phillips and Kinsler. I'm a big fan of Kinsler, also.
As it's already been pointed out, Upton has been slightly more productive with his ABs, and while his K rate is truly awful right now, he's shown significant imrovement in it over the last couple months - which is to be expected from a kid as young as Upton. He's reduced his K rate to about 1 every 4 to 5 official ABs, which is still a high pace but nothing close to what it was at the beginning of the year.
Can't go wrong with either of them, but I think Upton has truly elite potential. It's just a matter of whether or not the Rays end up dealing Baldelli and sticking him in CF, or if they keep Baldelli and keep Upton at 2B.
That is the problem with Upton, he wont be 2B elig past next year

How definite is that? With rumors swirling about the Rays wanting to move Iwamura, do you really think the Rays feel they'd be better off with someone like Brendan Harris at 2B over Upton? I understand that Upton is likely going to be the CF of the future, but is there really no chance that he stays at 2B and the Rays fill in CF with someone else or keep Baldelli?
UMMM move Aki? Move him to 2B. They are not looking to trade him. He is going to 2B or staying at 3B and evan will move. Aki is going anywhere. I see them trying to move Rocco if he can stay healthy. They want the OF to be CC, BJ, and Delmon. The INF will be Aki, Evan, and Reid by the end of next year
