Because Buxton was a super-prospect and young for the league he got a pass. "He'll figure it out. He's just adjusting to better pitching." It fit the narrative.
With Adam Brett Walker he isn't a super prospect (although he's put up super numbers). The narrative is different. People are expecting him to fail more. So when he struggle for the first month, it wasn't "He'll figure it out. He's just adjusting to better pitching." Instead it was "see, I told you his production wasn't sustainable." It fit the narrative.
