Astros fans who watched the draft are probably going to yell at me for this, but I am going to go against the showers of praise for Correa, the No. 1 overall pick, the highest drafted alumnus from the Puerto Rico Baseball Academy, and say that he could potentially be a bust.
Don't get me wrong, Correa was definitely a top 10, if not a top five pick, but first overall?
I would have thought the Astros would have gone for Stanford's Mark Appel, who was one of the best college pitchers, and the presumptive first pick, and if not him, then definitely Byron Buxton, whose ceiling was especially high.
I'm not saying that Correa will flame out, like former shortstop prospects Matt Bush and Tim Beckham, rather, he could play a role in the organization, but I just don't feel that he'll be one of the best first overall picks. Best case scenario, he does turn out well, but he's not an All-Star. Worst case, he fringes or is traded to another team a la Adrian Gonzalez.
Bottom line, Correa was good, but he definitely wasn't THAT good.
