Have you ever heard of that being the case? I can't recall any, off the top of my head.

After Francoeur, the next 5 hitters taken were Ryan Zimmerman, Andruw Jones, Edgar Renteria, Vernon Wells, and Alex Gordon.
Tim Lincecum would have been real nice with that pick instead.

The guy hit for very good average last year, hit a decent number of homeruns, and drove in over a hundred runs for the second straight year. Oh yeah, and he doubled his walks (which wasn't hard to do, but it shows he's working on it).
The numbers he's put up in his short career have been very good, and his approach at the plate is definitely improving.
Who knows what the added muscle will really do for him, all I know is I'll take a chance on a guy who's going into only his 3rd full season, has shown improvement each year, and is around that 27 yr old age where players breakout.

In a non-fantasy sense he is only half a player in my eyes.
