My scout discovers too many worthless international FAs

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense. There will be a message about how the scout wants to bring a guy to my attention, and then I'll look and the scouting report will say that the guy is a career minor leaguer. Why would a scout want to bring my attention to a career minor leaguer.

I think there should be fewer international FAs found by scouts, but they should be players with better potential. There's no point in a scout finding a one-star potential guy in Japan. There are usually enough of those sitting in the free agent pool.

I have found that my scout finds these players, I sign them and sometimes they end up better than what my scout initially thought.

I'm thinking it has to do with the 'randomness' of scouts. Some see a guy as good others see him as nothing. I think the game 'finds' a international free agent and then the scouting code scouts him. Finding him has nothing to do with how good your scout thinks he is.

I sign every player my scout finds, generally costs nothing because it is a minor league contract. If after a season or two the player still sucks I release him. I have had players that my scout said was a 1/2 star player when he found him and a 3 or 4 star player a few months after signing him.
