Watching and listening to the MLB Futures Game today, has me thinking about future Phillies Shortstop J.P. Crawford. Notice I didn’t say “Reading Fightins Shortstop.” He’s a special talent–one of those guys who isn’t fighting his way through the minors, but rather biding his time, refining his craft, until the inevitable, ultimate promotion–from wence he’ll never return.
So how long will the IronPigs benefit from a talent like that? At all? I’m not even sure what to think, at this point, so I’ll put it out there: What do YOU think?
