Marc Hulet praises Pirates scouting staff

The Hulet quote comes from a recent Fangraphs chat:

The Pirates have perhaps the most underrated international scouting dept in the business... not to mention their entire scouting department... Really respect what they've done with limited dollars. [Harold] Ramirez is still really young/raw but I love what I've seen/heard so far and he's definitely a Top 15 Pirates prospect.

I recall reading doubting reviews of the Ramirez contract when the Pirates signed him. Ramirez lacked power and was small. And yet, he is producing, as is Elvis Escobar and Jin-De Jhang. These players are years away from making the Majors. Yet, even if they hit a wall or suffer injuries, the already compose the best international class the Pirates have had in many years.
