That true and rather emblamatic of the entire system. Kids with no idea what they are trying to do, overmatched and apparently no one on the coaching staff is able to help them figure it out.
When (I no longer think if) the Sox blow it up and start over it's imperative that they spend whatever it takes to beg, borrow or steal the best scouts and instructors from other organizations. Pay them whatever it takes to get them. No more half assing things.
