Postby scorched03 » Mon Jul 19, 2004 10:29 pm

which will be better rest of the year? reyes just stole 2. i think he's stolen all his bases this year in 2 games???? odd..

upton can be just as good too, so I'm on the fence on this one.

I would go with Reyes when healthy he hits for average decent power and can steal bases. I think Upton will struggle a little bit when he first comes up.

I would wait on Upton until next year, for now I'd put my chips on Reyes staying healthy and putting up at least decent numbers.

I don't see the humor, Reyes has been hurt and still has huge potential. It's not as if Reyes has failed or anything.

Also, have to agree with the rest. Reyes should be better, Upton figures to struggle some at first.

yeah but for this year, if u had to choose between M Cabs & chose Reyes no your draft, ouhch that hurts, plus M Cabs has loads of potential also, that he has not reached yet,

Yeah, I never said it didn't suck if you choose Reyes instead, but I see no humor in it. Just same bad luck really is all. They both have big potential, it's like chosing between 2 pitchers where 1 is having a good year and the other is hurt.
