In Bryant's draft year Clint Frazier was the next hitter off the board.  Last year he had a .760 OPS in low A with a K% of 30%.  In 79 PA so far he has .644 OPS in high A.  Colin Moran, UNC,  was the next hitter picked.  He is repeating AA, with a .718 OPS so far.  Last year with a full year in AA he had a .741 OPS.

Aiken was number 1 on their board last year and the rumors where that Appel was #1 on their board over Bryant. 

I just want them to take, however they like the best and not take a lesser talent just because it is a hitter.  Hitter's fail and pitchers make it.  I'm sure the Dodgers are happy they took Kershaw and not Drew Stubbs, Billy Rowell, Tyler Colvin, Travis Snider, Chris Marrero, Matt Antonelli, Chris Parmelee, Maxwell Sapp, Cody Johnson, Hank Conger, Jason Place, Preston Mattingly, Emmanuel Burris, Kyler Burke or Chris Coghlan.  That is all of the hitters taken after Kershaw in the first round.  Linececum, Scherzer and Ian Kennedy where all picked after Kershaw as well.

That said at the top of that draft the Royals and Rockies took Hochevar and Greg Reynolds over Longoria.  Moral of the story, take who ever you think is best.
