Kieboom career OPS at AAA: .864
Noll: .788

Kieboom, AA: .721
Noll: .687

Kieboom A+: .880
Noll: .768

You can keep going, but theres really no argument to be made. Kieboom has outhit Noll at every level of the minors

You are literally picking without reading. Sensible research goes from evidence to conclusions. You have gone from an unreasonable affection for Kieboom to your conclusions. Noll outhit in 2018 and 2021. Kieboom had one good season in AAA, and flopped in the majors and back at AAA this season. The Nats gave him another chance in the majors, this season, and he flopped yet again. Noll out hit Kieboom by a lot this season at Rochester. Literally.

No, you're just picking whatever suits your whims.

Throughout their minor league careers, Carter Kieboom has been a significantly better hitter than Jake Noll.

Oh and by the way, Kieboom posted a 149 wRC+ in Single A in 2018, and a 102 wRC+ in Double A. Jake Noll hit 130 in Single A and 91 in Double A. So even in your cherry picked year, he didn't.

It's wrong to compare Noll year-to-year with Kieboom because Noll is 2.5 years older than Kieboom. In that 2018 season, Noll was old for the league (24 in A+) and Kieboom young.

By the way, while baseball views older guys in the minors as not worth promoting, we all know there are examples when this bites teams in the butt.  We have a bad major league roster right now.  Rolling the dice on Noll isn't the worst thing in the world as a backup infielder and letting him win more time.
