I have to admit, I've scoffed at the idea for a while that Buster Posey was a legit 1/1 pick. I've heard great things about his arm (closer for FSU at times), he is a really good athlete, and he could hit a little. But his ceiling appears to be a possible 10-15 home run guy that might his .300. Which is great for a catcher, but not exactly the ceiling you're looking for with the first overall pick in the draft.
Then I read on Raysbb that a caller with supposed "connections" said that he's in play. Not that he would be the pick, just in play. So I went and looked up his stats and was shocked. His season line for FSU reads like some NAIA line. He's hitting:
.472/.573/.857/1430 with 17 2B, 3 3B, 12 HR. A K/BB of 12/36. He's 4/7 in the SB department.
I guess all I'm saying here is that I'm amending my position. I know college numbers don't translate exactly to pro ball because of the aluminum, but if our scouts think his bat is legit, he could very well be the pick. He's doing this in the ACC, not some crappy conference either. I didn't realize he was hitting so well. I guess that's my fault, but man that line is abusurd.
