International Scouting: What You Get for the Money, Final Tally

Here are the final results of our four-team survey designed to come up with tangible numbers regarding what your Int'l Scouting budget really buys you. Remember, we've been checking in with four teams paying varying amounts to international scouts to determine the number of players each team sees, and what those players are asking for as bonuses. While this isn't the greatest barometer of player quality, it is at least identical across the board unlike player projections.

Minnesota North Stars: 20M budget. Total players scouted: 111. # players asking less than 1M: 73. Players asking from 1M-3M: 26. Players asking more than 3M: 12.

Anaheim Anteaters: 16M budget. Total players scouted: 98. # players asking less than 1M: 66. Players asking from 1M-3M: 24. Players asking more than 3M: 8.

Little Rock Travelers: 11M budget. Total players scouted: 66. # players asking less than 1M: 46. Players asking from 1M-3M: 14. Players asking more than 3M: 6.

Scranton Breakers: 7M budget. Total players scouted: 53. # players asking less than 1M: 32. Players asking from 1M-3M: 14. Players asking more than 3M: 7.

Conclusion: The numbers are almost what you'd expect: the 20M budget saw the most of all kinds of players, with the 16M budget coming in 2nd on all those players. Not sure why the 7M budget would see more 3M+ players than the 11M budget, but perhaps this was just a fluke as there's not much of a difference. Given the option, I'd rather have the 20M budget here, but if left to choose between the 11M and 7M budgets, I'd take the 7M budget which saw just as many high quality players as the 11M team.
