Well, if the deal goes

Well, if the deal goes down, the Red Sox will have barely two homegrown players on their roster: Trot Nixon and Lou Merloni. Not that better minor league development, skillful drafting, and generally fine dealing over the last few years haven’t helped them swing several important deals in the last few years, but there will be no claims, from this party, of the Sox’ ability to develop and play homegrowners. Until Kevin Youkilis shows up, that is. It is amazing how baseball has changed for those teams that can afford not to wait for their youngsters.
