I'm not saying that is necessarily a bad thing, of course, but how does it fall solely on the player development staff when the top prospects from your system are used to bring in other pieces? Gio Gonzalez, Ryan Sweeney, Clayton Richard, and John Ely are all former Sox farmhands who have been dealt since 2008 who are having nice little seasons elsewhere in the Majors.
The White Sox system as it is constituted now and has been for quite a few years is not geared to develop talent, it is geared to showcase talent to be used to acquire proven talent.
