Conor Jackson hasn't developed the power people expected, though he is a decent regular
I could be off on this (and I still get drawn in by guys like Drew and Quentin), but I feel like with the collection of hitters parks that Arizona has it leads to overrating of their prospects... I feel like I am missing another big 2B prospect that fell short for them, but I can't think of it right now.
That's not to say that I am not a Chris Young fan, or that I wouldn't take Justin Upton, its just something to be aware of with Arizona prospects (something similar happens with Anaheim prospects as well IIRC).
I don't really think you are being fair. Quentin was hurt, too early to write off Drew based on his first full season, Young was great, Upton held his own as a 19 yo, Jackson is decent and Reynolds was better than expected. In any case, Drew plays in a decent lineup and a great ballpark. He is power hitting SS who you can pick up late in the draft. He won't cost you much and the potential reward is pretty high.
