A totally frivolous post I have no problem if you want to erase this post. It's just something that occurred to me and I wanted to express it somewhere. I recently read that Crawford decided, after viewing tapes the past off-season, that he needed to be more selective at the plate. When Crawford was promoted at age 20 in 2002 he was totally raw and inexperienced. Football was actually his game. Suppose the exact same Crawford were 20 years old in 2006 in the Rays organization. A hypothetical question: When would he have been promoted, and what would his career have looked like? That is, would the Rays have worked on his plate discipline in the minors so that when he arrived he was already more aware of that skill? Leaving aside imponderables (a different situation, different players et al), is it possible he would have become a far better player even than he is?
