Arizona Diamondbacks 23 year old center fielder Justin Upton is arguably the hottest hitter in the sport right now and has thrown his name deep into the National League MVP discussion with his Diamondbacks holding a two game lead over the defending champion San Francisco Giants for first place of the National League west division. Justin who was the number one overall draft pick in 2005 is blossoming into maybe the best young position player in the game. Justin is also the younger brother of Tampa Bay Rays outfielder B.J. who in 2002 was the 2nd overall pick in that year’s baseball draft. The Upton’s are the only brothers in major league history to go one and two in the draft. Listen to this report as we speak with both as Justin approaches the cusp of superstardom.
