Who is/was better when they will be/were drafted, Bubba Starling or Byron Buxton?
That's a tough one.
Id probably go with Starling. I think the two are different players, even though they have similar backgrounds. Athletic, high school QB's, 5 tools ... But I think Buxton is going to be more of a McCutcheon type, and Starling more of a Matt Holliday type. Buxton is likely to keep his athletic build and be a speed guy with some power, while Starling will likely continue to pack on weight and be more of a power guy with some speed.
At least thats what I expect out of them. I dont mean to make it that they are identical to those comparisons, I just made it on body type and the type of game I think they evolve into.
