    Buckley here, but offensive production at Billings needs to be taken with a huge grain of salt, especially for a college player.

    I have more faith that Joseph will become a useful big leaguer, but Buckley has the better ceiling as far as I'm concerned.

    Same here.... but since its that way for me, I have Buckley ever so slightly ahead of Joseph.

    I think Joseph will eventually be a bullpen contributor, but Buckley has enough tools to be a starter at whatever position he ends up at. Something tells me he could land in RF, where his cannon arm and good power will look like a poor man's Bruce.

    Buckley's K rate is almost 30%.

    Joseph has struggled since leaving A Ball.

    Both have interesting offerings. (Buckley's power, Joseph's slider.) Neither looks like a great choice.

    Guys with plus tools and some level of production at #25 and neither looks like a great choice? Tough critic.
