Check out the thoughts of Minor League Ball's Byron Buxton. What Grade will he give the Twins top pick?

It seemed to me that among the experts, there was little to no skepticism written about him at the time, and any Twins fan who said Buxton was no more of a sure thing than any of the college pitchers got roasted by the rest of the Twins community who pointed to the "consensus" reports about him being the best player available.

There was plenty of talk about him being the most toolsy, but a lot of 'experts' did say that his weakest too might be his 'hit' tool.

Any particular reason he's started with the Twins?
He does every year. Twins, Braves, Royals are always the first three.

That said, we have him now, there's tons of good OF in front of him so he won't be rushed, so here's to hoping he develops quite nicely.
