People are very impatient, yet seem to be fine with a total rebuild. Do you know how bad the Sox would have to be for a long time and draft really well for that to work out? And if it did, how long does it really last? 86-89 the Sox were horrible. They rebuilt, just like a lot of people want and drafted about as well as anyone could expect, and were good 1990-1994 with one playoff appearance. Of course it was a bit more difficult to make the playoffs at that time. 83-85 win seasons are not baseball hell. 60-75 win seasons during a 20 year rebuild is.
Very valid points Dick - I agree with you there.
