Stanton had a .608 slugging percentage as a 22 year old! He lead the MLB in that category. He was 5th in wOBA and 3rd in OPS.

BJ Upton is good, but he's nowhere close to Stanton who is probably the 2nd best young player in the game after Trout.
I'm talking about Justin Upton.

Also, I would take Harper, McCutcheon, Posey, and Longoria before Stanton.
