Until the Sox start spending the amount of money need to really get good talent as well as develop it, they are going to be behind the eight ball. According to the numbers that Gonzo had in the Tribune, they spent the least amount of money in baseball over the last five years on the minor league talent.
Like my late father used to say, "you get what you pay for..."
This may change with Hahn in charge, he might take a more balanced appraoch to the entire major/minor league operation. We'll see.
