If you were starting a team...would you rather have Matt Kemp(24) or Justin Upton (21)?

Upton

I hate when people do comparisons of players on their favorite teams...

Both very good, but in the end i think Kemp will have the better career.

I say Upton, if he hadn't been injured this year his numbers would have surpassed many of Griffeys totals(including homeruns) in his age 20 season. Especially considering J-Up had much fewer ab's.

Uh?

.300/.366/.481/135+
.250/.353/.463/107+

One of those is Griffey's age 20 line, one is Upton's.

Those are rate stats, so it's pretty hard to used PA as an excuse.

63/81 K/BB
54/121 K/BB

Again, one is Griffey's, one is Upton's.

Well of course D-Back fans will vote for Upton.

Matt Kemp. Upton does not impress me, other than the fact that he can hit some pretty looking HR's.

I was there when he hit the 494 foot bomb. One of the most amazing things I've ever seen

Next year, I think Kemp will have better numbers but over the span of their careers, I'd rather have Upton

Upton has the potential to be a Griffey type player.

Potential can only get you so far but I will go with Upton.

Matt Kemp

Upton doesn't hit for average as well at Kemp. Kemp is the better overall player, IMO

as someone else said...Justin Upton has some unreal potential and could reach Griffey-levels of greatness but potential can only take you so far...

for right now I will take Kemp. I think both players are massively overhyped but Kemp has proved more to this point so really I cant justify taking J-UP.

one thing to look at is that Justin is supposedly better than B.J. who is an unreal player already and Justin is only 20. I will have to wait until after next season because at this point Justin is still a prospect so I am voting Kemp.

I wish we would've got Kemp from the Dodgers in the Manny deal.
