I remember reading here at WSI, comments from someone along with a quote that the 'philosophy issue' regarding the draft and the minor leagues comes from JR and EE, that when they first bought the team they said the way to build a contender is through free agency and trades.

If that's true, and I have no idea if it is with the owners, than that may help explain and answer the questions that are being posed here in this thread. (Although if that statement was true, the Sox wouldn't have had long periods when they basically shunned free agency altogether...)
