Smash em up and then not give the chance to redeem themselves. Sure you could say they can't take the losses experimenting with a new player back when they were in playoff contention, but then why in the world did Schoeneweiss get so many chances? Even though Borchard's pretty lousy so far I'm almost happy they're keeping him up because he ought to at least get the chance to prove himself. If I'm completely wrong about this then someone set me to rights.
THere is something wrong with how they shuttle guys up and down. Feliz Diaz is a perfect example of this. Either give him a fair shot or don't. but I don't see how shuttling him back and forth helps his confidence at all.

The Sox need to have a plan (a good one) to develop and evaluare their minor league talent.
