I think he ends up around .275 with 32 homers, 26 steals, 105 runs, 95 rbi's. Considering he is hitting .256 now and most likely won't end up there, projecting his recordables over the rest of the year at the .256 rate alone would give you great numbers. What if he ends up at .275 on the season, which has him hitting .295 the ROW. Gives those numbers a nice bump. Don't mean to ramble here, but Upton is a special player and another thing that goes unmentioned, is that even with his low AVG, he has been consistent with HR,SB (no droughts in those categories). That is invaluable in H2H. I love this guy. If only Lind could get going..... 8-o

...and he's only 17. Crazy. 8-o

His cumulative Stats are fine but it does seem like 8 out of ten times he has an 0 for whatever night. Preseason he was picked top 20. Do you guys believe he'll Get there by the end of the year. I've tried moving him but am getting seriously lowballed right now.
