Gallo #1 overall prospect??

This is more from a fantasy perspective than a strictly baseball one, but is it crazy to consider Joey Gallo the top prospect overall right now? I have him in one of my leagues and I was so discouraged by all the strikeouts last year that I was looking to trade him. I never saw a trade that made sense, so I held on to him. Now this year he has exploded, and with him still hitting bombs while vastly increasing his walks and batting average (although still to many whiffs), I can't think of another prospect I'd rather have. Offense seems to takes precedence over pitching in most fantasy circles, and damn, homers are sexy. If someone offered me Buxton for Gallo straight up, I'd say no. Am I crazy in thinking this? (Along those lines, can you remember a recent time when a guy drafted so relatively low, and down in the 50's or below in most prospect lists has risen so dramatically in one season?)

Signed, one happy owner :)
