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.

Dude, where are you getting yelling?  You yourself called Soto "lucky."  Also said Rendon was "can't miss" at #6 despite multiple players going higher and in that range in each that end up total busts.  Domestically we drafted Souza which became Turner and Joe Ross.  We drafted Giolitto/Dunning and signed Lopez which became Eaton.  We drafted Jesus which became Doo (and Madson for 2 years).  We drafted Pivetta which became our closer that didn't work out.  Going back to Gio, we acquired him trading players we drafted.
