Greg Walker (nice first half to his career)
Bobby Bonilla (we developed him)
Mike Cameron (we developed him)
Chad Bradford (we developed him)
I think it's also fair to say these players grown elsewhere reached their career peaks with the Sox:
You may now continue with your "woe is me" pity party.
Great job. I'll list just one over 35 years but maybe the best acquistion Nellie Fox.
