    Why would the Sox have passed on Groome because of his father? Do teams avoid Josh Donaldson because of his dad?

    Groome’s father is a completely different human being that the Sox didn’t draft...

    Notable DD draftees:

    2016:
    Dalbec
    Jay Grrome
    Chatham
    Shawaryn
    Not bad considering where we were slotted (12th, 51, 88, 118, 148).

    2017:
    Houck 24
    Brannen 63
    Scherff 161
    Not so good but bad slots

    2018
    Casas 26
    Decker 64
    Feltman 100
    Ward 160
    Granberg 190
    J Duran 220
    Actually, apparently a very good draft considering the slots.

    Jacko has been on this “family issues” kick ever since it popped up with Groome.

    Donaldson's dad was in prison well before he was picked. Also, Josh was the 48th pick in the draft. Groome's dad got charged immediately after the draft and Groome was the 12th pick in the draft. The combination of timing and draft spot would have had the sox pass if they knew his dad was actively doing illegal activity in the home right up and through the draft.
    The rebuild is complete.

    Did Donaldson’s dad affect his play on the field?

    Maybe the 'chip on his shoulder' made him better. Who knows? Only Jax knows, I guess.

    Why? They weren’t drafting his dad.

    I don’t think anyone would have passed on Groome because of his dad. His outrageous signing demands were another matter...
