They had a ton of pieces to work with because of their draft position; only recently did they start to pull off the trades that construct an actual team.
If they sustain it, they've got themselves a model. Otherwise, they've benefitted largely from the current drafting model as much as anything else.
So really you can't comment further on this subject for like, say, another 5 years?
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
