Think the Cubs screwed up their compete window and are near a point of needing to rebuild. Don't want the same for the Sox. They're my hope for a Chicago team competing for a title in the near future. I think Hahn has been waiting for years and years to finally get his chance to spend and build a team and I believe he is a good executive, while Kenny may be an idiot.

My main point is that, unless Jerry decides not to be a tightass, this isn't how I would use such a significant portion of payroll.
If you want to talk "TERRIBLE" FA contracts....Please see Theo!!! He's got quite the list!
