For all the discussion last year, I don't think anyone dreamed we'd have Rendon fall to us.  It may something about Baseball America that all of their top 20 is composed of kids 6' 1" or taller.  Even McCullers is listed as 6' 2".

Power seems to be more rare than before, so Gallo among those that ZDK mentions looks interesting.  Figure a HS 1B takes 3 or 4 years to develop, maybe more, and he'd be up in the majors towards the end of the Werth deal when 1B might be open (testing my clairvoyance).
