John Klima (of the always-interesting website http://baseballbeginnings.com) has a post on the the LA Times digital section today that focuses on Brandon Belt and his lightning-quick development into a legit ROY prospect. This rehashes much of the ground already covered by Baggs's article from a few weeks back. However, it's worth the read because Klima gets in some good digs at the Dodgers org.
Here's the money quote:
Belt is a case study of the value of institutional knowledge in amateur scouting, the value of why scouts need to like what players do best, need to pay close attention to where each player is along the developmental path, and why consensus thinking is the worst thing that can happen to any team. It’s also an example of why the Giants are producing young impact hitters right now and the Dodgers are not.
