Value of superior scouts and minor league coaches
I sometimes think that the Twins scouts and minor league coaches may be below average. Lots of other teams seem to have better prospects in their systems, especially starting pitchers. And as others have noted, finishing last in the weakest division in baseball suggests that something is wrong.
1. How important is it to have above-average scouts and minor league coaches? (the poll question)
2. Is there any way that fans can discern whether a teams scouts and/or coaches are below average? (for extra credit)
