It's obviously scouting and luck. You can't polish turds so you have to have good scouting. Scouting that projects what an 18 y/o will be when he's 23. Luck because, while projecting that, you can't predict a freak injury or just an injury from simple mechanical breakdown. Even deeper, you can't predict mental dumbassery like Josh Hamilton or Brien Taylor.
You didn't get much dialogue, IMO, because everyone knows this and we figured you were just looking to pound your Redbird chest.
Does this help?
