As RK pointed out it's been a long time since the Sox had that type of young talent.

Remember though it took them four desolate years (86 to 89) to be in position to get those high draft picks AND they had a tremendous talent evaluator (Larry Himes) in charge.

I've got nothing against rebuilding, it's something I think the Sox have to seriously consider but drafting and scouting is not an exact science even with the finest minds doing it. Do the Sox even have those type minds running the show right now? If not, would they pay the price financially to get them??

If they did would JR stay out of the process (as has been reported off the record in the past...)? Would talent be the directing principal? Or would it be 'who is his agent?'

Like with everything else about this situation (unfortunately) there are no clear cut answers.
