It's just that way it is. But in the Majors, performance counts. And Quintana has been exceptionally good. That trumps whatever nonsense scouting there may be out there.
Doublem, you're the only one that's actually countering the point. And I accept that it could be right. But my case has been from the start that Quintana is NOT getting by with talent, he's getting by on his ability to hide his pitches, giving all of them a few more seconds to every hitter. It could last. It probably won't though. At least I wouldn't bet on it. But, yes, it could. And five/ten years from now, I could look like a clown. But I'm comfortable making my case, because it's not very likely this continues.
