maybin laso missed time with injury and can steal 40+ again every scout out there prefers maybin over butler for many reasons obviously.
And thats really the deciding factor here. Not only do these guys know better then us(what to look for etc...) they see these players much more then us.
As i said b4 I have a couple family relatives that r mlb scouts. Ant they both prefer Maybin. (And i repeat thats just there preferance)But......the gap between them is not as great as u might think. Butler has incredible hitting upside!
Also they said not to get carried away with these sites too much. Butler's value has not dropped as much as some would have u believe!
