When it comes to minor leagues, what do you want me to test? Simply guessing which players will pan out and which won't is not terribly helpful. There are simply too many variables in play. I have my own theories and ideas about what should work and what won't. However, the entire point of this thread is to get input from other people in terms of what they think works and also try and get insight on to what the Reds' working philosophies are.
I can talk about the Braves' focus on work ethic and character, the Red Sox' individualized development planning, and the As' focus on continuity of philosophy and approach throughout the system. Those are all things I think good organizations should do. I have no idea what the Reds value or what they're doing internally. That's why I'm asking.
