They just got lucky and had a few things go right and it worked. What people don't like to admit about baseball is that, at the front office level, it's more or less 99% luck.
But either way, thinking that you have to go one or the other route is just stupid. The Royals have been rebuilding through their farm system for almost 20 years. How has that worked, eh?
That is about 100% false. At the front office level it's about scouting and being able to develop talent, that's not luck.
