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
Good job naming the 3 most talented players in all of baseball in your argument. Crawford is a solid player but he has no where near the tools of those players. Each one of those guys you named has/had an 80 tool. Crawford has maybe one 60 tool (his glove).

And you bring up Franco, next year will be his 5th year in the system, FYI, so not sure how you can complain about a 4 year path to the bigs. Honestly that's best case scenario to me. I would be ecstatic if it only takes him 4 years to get here.
