    Where does Bruce's power rank historically among 20 year olds in the minors. He has to up there. Though, power is usually overrated at this point and polished discipline more important, where Jay is still a bit weak.

    A bit.... but as a hitter, he is as polished as you can get at 20 years old.

    or he may ever get. He may not get much better as a hitter. That is something that will determine whether Jay can be a Pujols/Vlad type of hitter or Richie Sexson.

    Bruce is averaging 1 HR/ 11 AB's right now in AAA....that's just frightening.....sorry Upton, you have SERIOUS competition for top prospect honors right now.
