That's an analogy, if anyone needs a hint.
The Sox do need to do a much better job in the long-run at developing their own position players and stars. Relying on expensive veterans I do think is penny-wise and dollar-foolish. That said, I don't think that is necessarily relevant in building the 2013 team. The Sox can't afford to rebuild and give up on a season or two as other teams can.
