    Question Byron Buxton or Aaron Hicks?

    If the Twins do use the #2 pick for HS OF Byron Buxton will he beat Aaron Hicks to the majors?

    Not unless he goes the Mike Trout route.

    No. I would expect Buxton to take 4 years, minimum.

    That would be extremely unlikely. Hicks is really only 2 years away and Buxton is 18 years old. He's good, but not Bryce Harper good.

    I think it's possible for 3 years if he really cruises through the minors. Very, VERY, unlikely I might add!

    Only if Hicks never pans out.
