B.J. has bragging rights on brother Justin

Former Biscuit B.J. Upton does have a little verbal ammo to tease brother Justin with ... four days' worth.

Justin was promoted from Class AA Mobile today, less than two months after debuting with the BayBears, to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He was 0-for-1 today in his major-league debut.

Justin is 19 years, 342 days old as of today -- Aug. 2.

B.J. was 19 years, 338 days old when he made his major-league debut Aug. 2, 2004. He was 1-for-3 with a walk.

That's eerie.

Of course, Justin was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 draft and B.J. had to wait until second in 2002, so Justin has him there.
