Yeah, those two must be the last of the good position players that came up through the Sox. Remember, though, that Crede and Rowand were drafted in 1996 and '98. 17 and 15 years ago.

We discussed this in another thread, but this is the big difference between the playoff contender teams of the mid-2000s and today. Once that stream of in-house talent dried up, there was no one left to either fill holes in the Sox line up or to use as trade bait to acquire good talent.
