I was being a bit facetious, but there is some truth to that, their best LA arms have been the low cost gambles on frame and arm instead of being enamored with high velocity 16 year olds who lack the body control to develop command and secondary pitches. The pitching equivalent to Ortiz.
Who are the successful high priced arms?
Neris ($17K), SD ($25K), Suarez ($25K), Sanchez ($35K), Llovera ($7.5K),
Lehigh: Medina ($70K)
Reading: Morales ($720K)
Jersey Shore: Santos ($150K), Silva ($100K), Reyes (???)
Clearwater: Yanez (???), Castillo ($1.6M), J Martinez (???), Francisco (($10K), Vargas ($525K), Garrido (???), Hernandez (???), Segovia (???), A Made (???),
