You know, after thinking about this story (it's been all over the local media the past couple of days), I have the following thoughts:
1. This is what was missing which kept the Cubs out of the World Series. Now they are The Team of Destiny.
2. When you read number 1 above, then you have to wonder where Ricketts and Theo have their heads. They say they are building a winning team which will compete at the highest level in 3 or 4 or 5 or is it 7? years from now. Why are they concerned with this? They sell 3,000,000 tickets already each season. They cannot focus on what needs to be done to build a winner, they are too focused on the show they put on for the fans who really "don't care if we win or lose, just take me out to the ballgame..."
Glad to see the Sox address important issues like player development-that is what builds a winner.
All I have to say is that there better be a Lou Gehrig or Frank Thomas quality kid available for the 2014 draft......
