Will Upton mash right away or will he struggle

Yes- He's Pujols Junior!
No- He'll have a David Wright start.
Neither, He'll be like Alexis Rios, solid but not spectacular.

Wait a second........... that almost made sense. Why so un-stupid lately? I appreciate the lack of puntuation but come on, you haven't said anything sensible since you joined :-?

Rico has turned a new leaf; you'll see more of this. Right Rico? ;-D
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

I have no clue, but since I'm in a keeper league I went ahead and grabbed him just in case.

I'd say none of the above? At least not for right now.

But in keeper terms, he's a must have. No such thing as a sure thing, but Upton looks pretty close.

A ss like Arod hasn't been seen since Honus Wagner. Chances are we won't see a Arod type ss for awhile. Upton is my favorite prospect. He compares some to Jeter. You never know how long it will take a guy to jell. Age, minor league experience play a part.
