Maybe I will become the richest man in the world, but I don't think anyone should spend too much time on that hypothetical.
Towers could look like a genius because he loved Didi because of his athleticism and felt he would grow into a much different player because of it. Anyone can look at a player having good numbers in minors and say hey I think he will be good in majors. He looked at it from his scouting background and seen potential for much more. It is way early but he has to be encouraged by the start.
If you don't like talk about small samples possibly being an introduction to something more you should probably avoid forums until August.
