Who was the last position player to come through the Sox minor league system that turned into a solid, above average MLB player? I'm really having a hard time thinking of anyone decent since 1998. Chris Young? Beckham? Not that I think either of those guys are above average MLB players, but who else is there? 15 years is a long time to be cranking out a bunch of Josh Fields and Brian Anderson and Brent Morel-type players as some of our more notable prospects.
