Royals offer tips for building a rebuilding

Winston-Salem outfield

Given that the Royals successfully capitalized on the build-baseball’s-best-farm-system formula, they’re a good team to talk to about the White Sox’ recent spate of acquisitions. Dan Hayes did so, and the various members of the Kansas City organization gave their recollections of the different stages.

That said, the Royals aren’t a perfect match since they built most of their farm system through the draft due to an ugly eight-year stretch. The White Sox have acquired their top prospects from the outside and are still in the process of building waves of talent, the depth of which is reflected by affiliate records and playoff appearances.

They won at Rookie-Burlington, Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha took home three titles. Working together was a big key to the team’s success at the major league level, said catcher Salvador Perez.

“We didn’t come from different teams,” Perez said. “We all came from here. We had a young team together. We learned how to win and win in the big leagues.

“We learned how to win together, play together and play for the team. It was really important.”

While the Sox aren’t winning games up and down the system yet, it does point to one thing I’ve thought needed to be accomplished sooner rather than later. Basically, the Sox need to get players used to each other in the minor leagues, thus not subjecting the team to the weird clubhouse flare-ups stemming from differing ideas over how things are supposed to be.
