B.J. Upton's had a pretty good career so far, but his brother Justin might be the best talent in the family. Justin definitely made his mark in 2010; in a Diamondbacks lineup loaded with high-K, high-power hitters, Upton may have been the most well-rounded of them all. B.J. suffered from injury last season, but he's had success in the majors before and has the speed advantage over his younger brother. SportsNation ranks the Uptons as the best brother combo currently playing, but which Upton will end up with the more valuable career?
