No doubt, you are correct, I can tolerate criticism of the Ken Williams, Jr. pick but not if you're going to lump them all in one ball.
FWIW, it's not like the Sox whiffed on some game changer in the 2008 Draft. A quick glance shows the best player taken after Williams appears to be Andy Dirks.
If we're going to talk about what the Sox need to fix in terms of their brutally bad drafting and developing, I'll pick "Stop blowing early round draft picks on worthless players" 8 days a week before I pick "Nepotism in the 40th round"
