Byron Buxton and The Draft

This kid is a freak. He is ridiculously athletic and has an amazing potential. He could be a mix of the Upton brothers. He could have Justin's power and arm, and B.J.s speed and fielding ability. That is a big, big if. I know a lot of you guys don't want Buxton because he is too much of a risk. This draft class is so weak, the last five or so years there have been sure fire number ones, Bryce Harper, Gerrit Cole, and Stephen Strasburg, and many others.

I don't like Mark Appel all that much, to inconsistent, has awesome strikeout numbers. But if we draft a college arm I want him to be sure fire and have a great senior year, just my opinion. I like Gausman more than Appel and if we draft a college arm he should be the one. I like Zunino but not as number one I don't like the Idea of drafting a college catcher first round, again just my opinion. There is to much room for a bust at the catcher position, but I could be wrong look how Buster Posey, and Matt Wieters have turned out. Those are the four guys I see the Astros pursuing strongly in the draft. I for one like Buxton or Gausman with the number one pick.
