I live not too far from the Baseball America office in Durham, NC. If anyone who has a good pulse on any Bulls prospect, it has to be the guys from Baseball America . Here is Manuel's take on our guy, BJ Upton.
If they move him to the outfield, it would be the greatest mistake and travesty you could ever make with a player. He has the tools to play a premium position in the middle of the diamond, and to waste that would be awful. When he was drafted, the questions were whether or not he had enough bat to go No. 1 overall, because everyone thought he could definitely play shortstop, maybe be a potential Gold Glover. So that shows you how inexact this sport and this business is."
