Jim Callis of Baseball America on the selection of Brian Bullington (in response to a question about choosing Danny Hultzen:
People don't remember this, because then-GM David Littlefield called Bullington a No. 3 starter on draft day, but Bullington was as good as any prospect not named Upton in that 2002 draft. He had a 92-96 mph fastball, a hard slider, good command and a good frame. We ranked Bullington as the third-best prospect that year (behind Upton and Kazmir), and we have Hultzen as the third-best this year. If Rendon and Cole were at their best, to me, I'd take them over Hultzen. But it's hard to use that No. 1 pick on someone not at their best, so that puts Hultzen into the discussion. He has a little less velo and size than Bullington, but he's a lefty who had more polish and a deeper repertoire.
Hultzen anyone? PS, my next door neighbor said that Dave was a great little league parent.
