Just because players are missed in top 100's is no reason to dismiss "experts".
I'm not saying scouting isn't important I'm saying that there is no way to predict who is gonna to evolve and who is going to bust. There just isn't. That's why trades for prospects will always be a huge risk...some of them end up like Aaron Poreda and some of them end up like Gio Gonzales.
