Fangraphs: Kip Fagg: Scouting and Signing Texas Rangers

6
On the team’s success in the international market: "Like I said, it’s a group effort and I think our guys have done a helluva job over there. Last year, when we signed Nomar Mazara and Ronald Guzman, I saw those guys and compared them to what we had on the amateur side, in the States, and we planned accordingly. We have a plan, and regardless of which arena they come from, they are all Texas Rangers. "It’s all about scouting. We also ask our guys down there to be around the players and get to know them very well. It’s not just tools. Obviously, they’re talented and have tools, but there’s more to it than that. Everyone on the evaluation side with the Texas Rangers is held to a high standard, and we expect our guys to know their players, which goes much deeper than the on-field evaluation. Jon Daniels, our GM, sets the tone and we all know what’s expected of us at the end of the day."
