I'm not saying Theo didn't make some savvy moves to get the Red Sox over the hump, but to compare it to a total rebuild is a bit dramatic. 2 years into this Cubs experiment and the team seems to be spinning it's wheels.
But they won again in 2007 with many different players including those draft picks from 03-05 who all played in that World Series.
