The Sox lucked the hell out on at least two of those picks, if not three. They knew what they were getting with Ventura, although I think the Cubs passed him up. In fact, I'm almost positive the Cubs picked ahead of us on BOTH Ventura and Thomas. That said, I don't think the Sox had any idea that Fernandez would pitch as well as he did as quickly as he did. He was playing with Miami earlier in 1990. He was almost like a Chris Sale situation in 2010.
