Why was Soto "luck?"  Of course you can't EXPECT any teenager to be that good, but why is identifying his talents luck?  You seem to be hell-bent on just downplaying anybody we draft/sign as luck or "can't miss."  There are all kinds of misses internationally and in early MLB draft picks each year. 

Dude i have literally said multiple times in this thread alone our international scouting staff is excellent. Why are you yelling at me. What was lucky was that 19-year-old Juan Soto was not only MLB ready but a superstar immediately when we needed him to be. No one prepares for that or expects it.

What makes our international team so impressive to me is we've never really spent huge dollar amounts on the top guys. Robles, Soto - they weren't hugely hyped at 16.
