Both Buxton and Trout blew up in the Midwest League, so the comparison is naturally going to be there. Looking ahead, is there a chance that Buxton could be better than Trout? I examined the hype here and want to know what you guys think.

There's a chance Kohl Stewart will be better than Walter Johnson and a chance that Buck will be better than Trout. If you just must bet one of these make it the second .

Every time I say something remotely negative about Buxton he blows up.


Buxton sucks. Will never make the bigs.

Can't you aim higher? Like "no chance he is an all star" or "I can't imagine he is a hall of fame talent".

I don't know... it works. Expect him to 3 for 4 tonight.

After the first few times I saw Buxton, I said he is better then Trout. People looked at me with a little, "what ever" look. Not many people give me that look anymore.

Buxton is a better prospect than Trout was all across the board. Will he be a better MLB player though? I don't know. He has the talent and we know baseball is his passion, so I think he can. He was born to play and he wants to play.
