Certainly the trap the Phillies fell into with big bonus babies Encarnacion and Ortiz, but generally the Phillies do sign quite skinny IFs, CFs, and ptichers and, apart from Sixto, haven't hit big with that strategy either. It will be interesting to see how the Phillies do with Yhoswar Garcia, who at a year older than claimed had a big evaluation advantage over the younger competition and a year's less upside growth (physically; with the suspension and Covid, more ike 2 years less developmental time growth potential).
Encarnacion and Ortiz were also products of the Phillies determination to sign amateur talent with power. It seems they only evaluated for batting practice raw power and gave a lot of $ to one-dimensional tool players. Too bad the tool they chose wasn't an in-game tool.
BA currently has a ranking of 10 best international July 2 signing classes, going back about 20 years. About 80-some guys on the list as best guys signed that year, more than a few franchise-changing talents. Two Philies signees listed: Galvis and Cesar Hernandez. Maikel Franco is listed as basically an interesting honorable mention in addition to his year's top signings. If Sixto's year had been counted as one of the top classes, he obviously would have been listed among the top signings -- if he stays healthy he may well join my list of franchise-changing talents. But, all-in-all, not a very impressive haul for the Phillies.
