Gallardo? Andrew or Adam Miller? Lincecum?
And with Gordon, Young (I like that pick), and one of the above pitchers, you'll have three guys all close to the majors. So you coudl go with a youngster like Maybin, Bruce, or Upton (I like Bruce most - plus I think he'll be in the majors soonest) and wait the 2-3 years before they are worth something.
I agree. Gordon is the clear choice at no. 1. After that, if you take one of those four pitchers, you'll be looking at a guy who should contribute in some legitimate capacity for you soon and at a high level. That certainly affords you the luxury of taking a younger guy with that third pick you've got. I'd also throw Andrew McCutchen into the mix, but, like Galt, I'd take Jay Bruce. I think in the standard 5x5's he'll be the most valuable.
