Teams can't wait around for a half decade until a player may be ready, Franco should be playing MLB next year if he finishes in AA crushing, AAA will prove nothing
Well those are some crazy examples right there. Trout and Harper are looking like they may be the two best positional players from their generation. Of course they're not going to spend much time in the minor leagues. And even then, both spent a full year in the minors, I believe. I agree that a lot of high end prospects are spending less and less time in the minors developing, but let's not get carried away. A and AA are still great leagues for guys to develop in.
