Winning the WS in '05 wasn't a vindication of how the Sox have run their minor league system over the last 10 years.

For all I know, all these former players really are the best baseball people out there. But, I have my doubts that is really the case.

The only shake up I can think of in recent years was in 2008 when they hired Buddy Bell for their minor league system. That was something like 4 years ago now and the Sox are just as devoid of talent as ever.
