  1. I was at Binghamton yesterday and witnessed a great game by JP Crawford….his hitting line 4-6 with a HR, 2 2B’s, …one out was a hard line drive to RF….but his fielding was more spectacular….even the Met’s fans near me were in awe. He made incredible plays in the hole and up the middle…..Roman Quinn’s speed was again on display, on the base paths, and in center field, and in left field covering for the lumbering Perkins……Met’s fans enjoyed a good game by Michael Conforto, their 2014 #1 draft pick……

  2. WTG JP. He is what they look like. True prospects rarely struggle in the minors and when they do it only looks like others mediocre meaning its never really that bad.

    1. Regardless of how you characterize him, Crawford is one of those rare talents in baseball – the type of guy around whom you can build a franchise – a pillar. If you forced me to place bets on who was going to be the Phillies all-time hits leader in 2033 – I’d bet on Crawford. Yeah, he’s that good.

      1. What will be even more impressive is that the hits will only represent a fraction of his overall value. And, as I’ve said before, if he hits for moderate power (15-20 homers a year), he’ll be one of the best players in baseball.

      2. In consideration of all that can go wrong, I will take the J-Roll side of that bet. Not achieving greatness, injury, Trade etc. as a group are more likely than becoming all time hits leader. We are talking about the Phillies here after all. : ) That being said, I agree with you that the future looks bright for Crawford. If does break the J-Roll record, I would not be shocked and would be ecstatic.

        1. Good points – but I think we all agree he’s an electric talent. He’s doing what true elite prospects do – he’s the youngest player at the level and he just takes off.

    1. Absolutely – definitely the best prospect since Hamels and it’s really not close. Probably the best offensive prospect since Rolen (Utley became great – but he was not as a hot of a prospect as Crawford); although, hypothetically, if we had both in the minors at the same age and at the same time, I think Crawford would have been more highly ranked, but it would be pretty close. Rolen was one hell of a prospect and one hell of a player, he’s better than a lot of guys who have gone to the HOF. It’s too bad he was such a touchy kind of guy – he never really got the credit he deserved. He was a GREAT player.

    2. Are we so quickly forgetting Dom brown? I believe he moved up to #1 in Baseball Americas mid-season rankings after a few players were called up on 2009 or 2010

      1. Brown never had the pedigree and had major holes in his game that people thought would get fixed (route running, etc). Even correctable holes sometimes don’t get corrected in certain players. Brown peaked in AA.

        1. Brown was still the unanimous #1 prospect in all of baseball at one point.Crawford has yet to reach that level.
