As a longtime White Sox fan stuck in Red Sox territory, I caution your knocking Theo. The Red Sox have had a terrific farm system for the last 10 years. They have turned out plenty of high quality players on their roster as well as those they used for trade bait. Their rapid turn around this year includes several rookies who have made solid contributions. Hopefully Hahn will do the same for our farm system.
