Thread: Is Byron Buxton the Top Prospect in the Twins Organization?

  1. #41
    The spots may be close, but within the rankings of prospects, there are also tiers. Buxton is likely in a different tier than Sano. Trust me, Sano has been one of my favorite prospects for years now. I remember arguing with Kab21 over at a different site about his Miguel Sano-Angel Villalona comp a few years ago. Buxton just has some very loud tools that project to be better than Sano's tools.

    Fair enough. I missed the forest for the trees.

    The easiest position to play is second base, not corner OF, not 1B, not 3B.
