Looking for Ozzie's point

While the source means that the issue was raised in a less-than-helpful way, I'm glad to see that the underlying point in Ozzie Guillen's latest battle with the universe is getting some attention. So, let's ignore the blatantly stupid parts of his latest bout of verbal arson (leave it to him to declare "I'm the only one" or pretend that high profile Latino big-league-ready signees for millions get lesser treatment than high profile Asian big-league-ready signees who get millions).

I'm curious what other obsessive followers of the minor leagues think about a team's obligations to teenagers they sign out of foreign countries. Also are their teams that get player development advantages by managing the process - from the time a 14-year-old comes onto their radar in Venezuela until a 23-year-old arrives in the Majors - better than their competitors?  I wonder if Max Kepler's getting any different assistance in transition, language and cultural competencies, etc, than Sano?

Anyhow... discuss!
