For every Luke Voigt there are 2999 washouts where their past history proved correct, and they had no ability to perform well in MLB.
I dont want the Twins to sift through 2999 washouts looking for nr 3000. I want them to acquire and play the few who have demonstrated a high likelihood of success. I certainly dont want them to look at 2 scoreless innings from Ryan Eades, which consisted of modest pitches and 4 baserunners, and a runner thrown out at the plate, and determine there's more there than 6 minor league years have shown.
He's on the team, and will get innings so I hope he performs well. But I hope they dont stop looking for better options, so he can be returned to Rochester where he belongs.
There will be a (impossible to determine) percentage of those 2999 washouts who were never given a chance due to predetermination.
Those 1 out of 3,000 players all seem to be landing on the same rosters. IE Only Certain teams seem to be good at finding these 1 in a million players.
You don't want the team to sift through 2999 washouts in search of that rare 1 out of 3000 player. I don't either... but I'm insistent that they sift through 25 players at a time.
BTW Giving Eades or anyone a chance should not prevent a team from looking for better options. The team should constantly be looking for better options. However... Not giving Eades or anyone the chance to be a better option due to predetermination is the very definition of "stop looking for better options".
