It's a crapshoot, but it's rare for a guy who profiles like Stubbs to develop into a guy worth the #1 overall pick. When I look at him, I see a guy who could become a good defensive CF who steals plenty of bases and has lots of power. That's good. But, his idea of the strike zone is pretty bad. It is very, very rare for some one to drastically change their K numbers. When I see him, I think Preston Wilson. Guys like Miller, Longoria, and Hochevar are more ready to contribute and better picks.
The Royals are already one of the most pitiful teams in baseball and their owner has descended into the ranks of names like Bidwell and Wirtz as the worst owners in professional sports. Their farm system does not offer much hope as it is, especially in regards to pitching. This team needs all the help it can get; being cheap in the draft isn't going to help. They did end up drafting and signing Alex Gordon...so maybe they won't be penny-pinchers.
Then again, this could very well end up like Bullington over Upton.
