    That's crazy to think about, but I remember asking Dave Cameron in a chat if Sano's floor was Pedro Alvarez, and he quickly dismissed it, saying every prospect's floor is replacement level or below. As Nick said, there's no such thing as a sure prospect.

    But it seems as though Buxton is about as close as one gets.
    I just started the blog Troy Williamson's Hands which is about MN sports and whatever else I want to write--you can find it at http://troywilliamsonshands.blogspot.com/

    Just noticed that BA ranks Buxton #1 and Tanaka #5.

    Got me wondering: if MLB declared Buxton a free agent today (say, it was discovered that Terry Ryan tendered his contract late in 2012 ), what kind of contract could he get?
