I agree that it would be nice if they would at least sign some guys here and there, but the SOX have gone "all in" with the few signings they have made.
Rationalization. It really doesn't matter that they've hit on a whole two Cuban signings. Completely neglecting almost the entirety of the international talent available to them is inexcusable. An organization with the resources that the Sox have shouldn't get a pass in this area. The same goes for the draft and player development. It needs to be fixed.
