The organizations that consistently “develop” players do it because they are better at identifying players who are likely to succeed. It’s not because they do a better job arranging batting practice or finding a bullpen catcher.
    I'm not sure I can disagree with this more. Finding good coaches-- and allowing them to coach-- is vital, IMO, to a burgeoning farm.
