All this week, The Ringer will break down its findings from the massive database of reports spanning 1991 to 2003 given to us by a former member of the Cincinnati Reds’ front office. First up, we run the numbers on how well the scouts did in projecting players’ success and what some of their work tells us about where the sport was and where it is now.

Going through some internal reports from the weekend and one of our scouts used 'pulchritudinous' in a summary and I'm still reeling from it.
