    Washington Post - Dominican Talent System

    I'll have to link this one since it's a long article. It's a story of how the system for finding and developing players in the Dominican Republic. Starts with a story about a Nationals prospect, but includes excerpts from Jose Rijo who followed Bowden to DC.

    Interesting read. Sounds like 100% capitalism down there. Survival of the fittest. I don't know how much interest I have in the Reds signing young Domincans to fat contracts, if they could be temporarily juiced up. If you think you are signing a kid who is throwing 95 and it turns out to be 85, you are in trouble.
