Default Sano or Buxton

Who do you think will be better. I think that Buxton could be better in the long run but you can't overlook Sano and his power. Just want to get other peoples opinions...

im gonna take a big swing here and go with sano, too early to tell with buxton, already seems like sano is one of a few guys that are a lock to at least be solid contributors.

The funny part about this is that Sano is only 7 months older. Technically, if he grew up in the US, they could be at the same level. He won't be 20 until May. While he could stand to improve pitch selection, he forces pitchers to make mistakes simply because they know if they miss in the zone, it could very well leave the yard in a hurry. His .373 OBP in a full season league as a teenager is testament to this fact.

Yes, unfortunately for Buxton he has the Right Handed swing of Ken Griffey Jr.; since Griffey never made it in the Majors, neither will Buxton.

I think it's way too early on for Buxton to be able to choose between the 2.

I am going to go ahead and assume by "soxrule" and your statement that you are a white sox fan which makes your statement make all the more sense.

Tough call, I love what we've seen from Sano so far, but Buxton's potential seems to be sky high. I'd go with Sano for now, but if/when Buxton develops he looks to be the better player.

In terms of eventual WAR, Bux has more potential value due to his position and defensive prowess. His star status will depend on his power development. Sano probably ends up at 1B but his ceiling is of a 35-40 hr/100 rbi guy and those are quite valuable to the middle of your lineup.

His swing looks like Griffey's! That guy blew....

Edit: Crap, it's not funny when someone beat me to the punchline already.

Ask this question after next year, when Buxton will have had some experience in A ball.

I spoke to Keith Law and asked him about Buxton, Correa and the draft class in general. He said that the only player from the 2012 class that would be picked in the 2011 draft would be either Buxton or Correa to the Indians and the other would go to the Padres at 10. That just shows how weak of a class it was. I'm obviously going with Sano.

I like Sano (Proly cause i have a large hoard of his cards) haha but i have liked him since he was signed as a Free agent. They maybe pretty much the same age but one signs like he is 5 years old.

Something just is not right about that statement he made.

There are 40 rounds in the mlb draft.

Is he REALLY saying the top 2-3 rounds wouldnt have even been drafted in rounds 38-40 in 2011!?!?

Come on, if that is really what he is saying I have lost a lot of respect for him.

Whoever made that comp is looking at a completely different Byron Buxton than what I see in every single video. Griffey had amazing balance. Buxton can't keep his weight back for sh!t. On top of that, he starts with an open stance, closes up, and flies back open as his weight transfer is always out front well before the point of contact. There are only a certain few incredibly gifted hitters than can overcome such a drastic flaw. Alex Rodriguez is one but Buxton will have to have amazing hands/wrists/forearms to do so. Maybe he can. I just know I wouldn't spend the kinda cash the Twins did on that project. I just don't think he is intelligent enough to be anywhere near a Griffey-type player.

Buxton is the definition of "projectable" because he is athletic and super fast but very raw.
