I fail to see why Buxton has bust written all over him. Because he's from a small town? May not have big time power? With his overall package of skills and work ethic, there's no reason to think he won't be a star. A Peter Bourjos type is the floor IMO. That's definitely not worth the #2 pick in the draft, but he's clearly got the skills to be a better version of Adam Jones, even up there with some Mike Trout ability.
I just don't see it. He won't have the power of Adam Jones, not close. Maybe BJ Upton without the pop.
