This happens to every team. Just about every 1st round pick from college was drafted 3-4 years earlier and chose not to sign. Very few teams, let alone the Sox, can afford to be handing out 4-5 1st-round value contracts to 10th-round and plus draft picks on the off chance one of them might be the real deal. Hell, guys picked in the 1st round are a big enough crapshoot, you want to give a guy picked #523 in the country several million dollars? That's crazy.
