I wouldn’t rate Robbie Kilcrease as a top prospect just because he has pitched the most innings in the system without allowing a homer. It’s a good stat, but you also have to factor in age, level, role, strikeouts, walks, groundballs, BAA, splits…basically any stat at your disposal.

After watching the Curve for 15 seasons now,I think I can safely say that this is one of the worst defensive teams I have seen in all of that time,and have seen poor play besides errors add to Taillon’s (and others ) totals here at home. when you are looking at an outfield that has had at times,Dickerson and Curry on the corners,or Lambo in center,plus Charlie Cutler at first base,you are looking at defensive liabilities.
