Talent evaluation.
So tired of this excuse. Sox had subpar options (including Sweeney at the time) because they were betting Anderson would develop into an everyday hitter.

You can't blame talent evaluation when all the available options stink.

Chris Young didn't play a day in the big leagues with the Sox, so that's Kenny's mis-evaluation, not Ozzie's.
