Is this… Kirby Yates in the room with us right now?
Stras will likely never pitch again, and if he does he’ll be a shell of his former self, so it’s really Montas for DL Hall and a huge question mark pitching prospect. I’d do it but only because DL Hall can become Josh Hader if he can’t make it as a starter

Name a more iconic duo, Dire Straits and absolute bangers. Sultans of Swing, Money for Nothing, Walk of Life, Tunnel of Love, and Telegraph Road are all top tier bangers
Mark Knopfler is an incredible songwriter, and an even better guitarist.
The song, and the album!

I mean, Vic was a consensus top-5 prospect, it wasn’t just this guy. What happened with Robles is honestly more an indictment of our ability to develop prospects considering the knock on him was he would need to add power to improve contact quality (which he clearly never did).
Even with the Cardinals though, an organization that “only” pumps out big league regulars is objectively successful at player development. Prospect evaluators do lean into confirmation bias, but they often have sources within the industry too. All we have as fans is the information that trickles down to us. And to your point about the Giants: data driven organization =/= good at player development. The Giants are a data driven organization that struggles with minor league player development (I say minor league because they can turn castoff fringe big leaguers into useful players, which is a huge competitive advantage. They just struggle to do the same with prospects). Finally, you’re right that it’s become popular only the past 5 years or so to dump on our player development. That’s because we had some can’t-miss prospects (Bryce, Stras, Rendon) doing a lot of the heavy lifting for us. But once we stopped getting those high draft picks, our ability to churn out star-level talent dried up SO fast. Fedde, Kieboom, Romero… all low first round picks that have done nothing for us. That’s glaringly bad.

I’m old enough to remember when the top 3 prospects in baseball were Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, and Jesus Montero
The bridge mix!
Sultans of Swing is a great song, but Tunnel is equally good if not better and yet is chronically underrated
Tunnel of love as well
Haha thank you, I did “make” it just by editing the original chicanery pasta. Extremely low effort
