Sox fans also hate when people make **** up
Everybody knows the Sox haven't invested in their farm system for years and they'be paid for it now. These are, by the way, some of the same people who whined 10-15 years ago that the Sox were too reluctant to keep prospects instead of using them to make moves to bolster the Major League roster. So you can't win with them.
The Yankees acquired a 39-year-old, ****ty corner OF who has an OPS of about .700. They have a minor league system that has been just as bad as ours. It is what it is.
