The Sox certainly will get pitching back in any deal for a pitcher, and that's the one thing that we know they can develop. A common misconception is that the Cubs are good because they drafted almost all of their main players, when they really only drafted Bryant and Baez. In terms of the 2016 lineup, Rizzo, Heyward, Zobrist, Russell, Fowler, and Montero all came from other organizations. Their entire starting rotation came from other organizations. Chapman, Hill, Cahill? From other organizations. If you want the Sox to emulate the Cubs, the you should want them to start acquiring good young players from other organizations, and then later fill the gaps with veterans.
