Angels trade international money to Mets

Late bloomers? possibly but doubtful. The bigger issue is that we don't have enough of an international presence to sign young higher upside players, thus might as well get something for  your slot money. Kinda sad 

 

That isn't true.  We have a large enough presence to sign a COUPLE players.

Well it certainly could be that, where we just don't have enough extra international slot money to grab a higher upside player.

 

It could also be that the organization is f**king stupid, but unlike some of you I think Jerry has some brains.

 

From comments made by Arte himself, it appears that Dipoto is using some advanced analytical systems to assist with decision making and perhaps those systems identified these two players as possible upside targets. It doesn't mean that it will pan out (see: Blanton, Joe) but perhaps there was some characteristics or data that pointed to either one of these players being more than meets the eye.

 

Example: Using Data Mining a major grocery chain used advanced computing techniques to analyze customer shopping patterns. It was discovered that a large percentage of customers who purchased baby diapers also purchased beer in the same trip. The store used this data to modify the product layout and present those customers with specifically priced options that helped to maximize the customer's exposure to many other products in the store and to higher margin products (say Heineken vs. Coors Light for instance) to increase revenue.

 

The point that I am trying to make is let this play out over time. It is quite possible both of these players flame out in the Minors (most do to be honest) but Jerry's analytical systems might have identified these two as potential "candidates" that could possibly excel in specific roles.

 

Perhaps Dipoto's system has identified that players of a certain height and build tend to perform better and reach the Majors on a more consistent basis? Maybe Concepcion has a good throwing arm and they might try him as a pitcher? Maybe Dipoto's coaching staff identified a mechanical flaw in Perez's throwing motion that got him away from his good numbers in 2011?

 

You guys want a rebuild but you want multiple Mike Trout's and Bryce Harper's!?!? (tdawg please go wash your Trout pants now please)

 

If you can build a base of average MLB players it goes a long way towards saving you money in the long run for those big contracts you have to hand out (like Trout).

"The Angels sent international slot bonus to the Mets in exchange for two Minor Leaguers, outfielder Julio Concepcion and right-hander Andres Perez. Concepcion will be assigned to rookie-level Orem and Perez goes to the Arizona Summer League. The Mets essentially get an extra $360,000 to spend in this international signing period."

I would think you would get a decent prospect for $360,000.00.

Wow a marketing system based on my ex brother in law. Six pack of beer, cigs, and the smallest pack of diapers possible.
