Young, Taylor, Gordon never had the kind of hype Harper has. They certainly weren't BA top prospect in the minors before they even had a real Milb ab. Prior had Strasburg hype sure, but he was also fantastic for 4 years until his arm was shot. Same might happen to Stras but we'll see.
Young was a top 3 prospect by BA in every season after he was drafted out of high school.
Taylor was the #1 BA prospect before ever throwing a professional inning. He was the early 90s Strasburg without the internet feeding the hype.
