Default Upton Debuts in Tampa

Just a heads up - Upton is going to be up next inning, making his Major League Debut at 19 Years of age!

Best of luck to Upton, beat those BoSox!

As hawk would say, "this young man is gonna be a star"


Of course he has said that about such greats as mike cameron, mike caruso and of course the great scott eyre...just to name a few.

But upton is gonna be a star...over/under on how long it will take him to get into yankee pinstripes?

Has anyone here watched him play? I have, against the AAA mets teams here in Norfolk (his hometown). He was 0-4 or 0-5 with two consecutive errors that cost his team at least 2 runs. Perhaps it was just nerves but from what I have heard about him, he is not a good deffensive player but is sopposed to be an awsome hitter.

From Major league:

"Still hits the ball pretty well, doesn't he?"

"Yeah. He just can't field it."
