"Buxton is the consensus #1 pick..."

Baseball America's John Manuel has a post up about the June Draft class, where Luhnow addresses - or doesn't address - at whom they are looking for the 1-1 pick next month:

"I think it's fair to say nobody in this class has separated themselves as an obvious choice. It's like the saying goes, different strokes for different folks. We may like one player more than another, but there is a group of four or six or eight players that you're talking about as being in consideration."

All the usual names are brought up, but Manuel says the consensus #1 pick is Byron Buxton.

Click the link to read quotes from Bobby Heck about how the Astros have been able to seamlessly integrate what they have been doing for the last four years with what Luhnow was doing in St. Louis. Take that however you'd like.
