Frater, I think this may well be the heart of the Sox problem. Yes, also at fault is an unwillingness to invest more resources in drafting, scouts, etc. But perhaps the biggest problem overall is the loyalty over performance way of running things.
We've seen years of very little talent coming up through the system. Yet, was anyone accountable for these constant failures?
