Callis - Not many 5-ft-7 top prospects. Good D at 2B, can handle bat.
Joe Morgan was 5-8. Not comparing the two, but I think a smaller guy has the ability to succeed in baseball more than the other two major sports.
I'd love nothing more than to see both Hamilton and Torreyes build upon last year and end up batting one-two in Cincy in about three or four years. Hamilton with a high OBP and his amazing speed and Torreyes behind him with good contact and a small strike zone. It's a long way off, but having your DP combination capable of hitting at the top of the order gives you room for a lot of flexibility (and pop) all the way down the order..
