And by all accounts he screwed up took the walking boot off early and blew it out a second time, so he's missed 2+ years rehabbing the same ankle.

I want to reiterate that Iím not faulting the front office.

Iím saying that itís disconcerting that players we passed on, in the first round of the 2016-2018 drafts, are out-performing our draftees from those years.

I agree; and certainly don't trade for these 1 year players....the "who could have known?" prospect we traded for one of those was a top 3 MVP finalist.
Now if they want to trade for similarly situated young players, then fine.

As for the drafts, at some point there has to be accountability; yet there just never is any accountability. Yea, you can always say "3 other teams passed on X" - fine, in any given situation there are always a few orgs just as bad. But the Sox consistently seem to be in the group of teams that "could have." And Burger and Burdi were silly reaches anyway.

What's so different about our system when it comes to unlocking the talents of a high school pick compared to the other MLB teams farm systems?

Maybe our system is more typical like lots of other teams, but we certainly arenít exceptional like the Dodgers or Braves.
