And he’s put together more than one good season (and last year was more than solid): http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/u/uptonju01.shtml

Besides those things, yes he is an excellent player.

They want a proven bat and and arm, but they can’t put their eggs in one basket. They’re not the only team looking for help.

They are in on everyone and whoever takes the least that will be the move.
I would rather they just decide who they want then go after them. If it’s Headley or Upton then go get him. If it’s pitching then fine but being involved in everything makes the Pirates look silly to me.

He was hated in ATL and has worn out his welcome in TOR. Two thumbs down.

The kid needs to play and I really believe it harms a kid to sit their and rot at AAA when their are inferior guys up their playing everyday. Will he be a star right away? I doubt it. Barry Bonds batted 240 his first year. I think the expectations heaped on this kid only grows the more he stays down. Lets get him up and let him start catching balls Sutton lets drop (I actually really like Sutton just not everyday in the outfield).
