    That isnt the point though.

    The point is that we spent big only to fill a position that was stable as of last season.

    Trading for a single pitcher that doesnt have a hefty longer term financial committment doesnt refute my stance.

    The White Soxí payroll is $131 mil. That puts them at 15th or basically around league average. Where their payroll should be has been a topic of discussion numerous times. I for one, feel it should be a little higher, given the previous years frugality during the rebuild. I think between 5-10 would be feasible.

    The fact of the matter is the Sox are probably never going to operate any differently under this ownership. Does this leave them with room to make moves at the deadline? Extend certain players? Add more next offseason? Only the organization truly knows that answer. But if we have expended the budget that was allotted, the question then becomes, where would you have rather it been spent?

    Another starter, and no Hendriks?

    They should have signed another starter in addition to Hendricks. They're budget isnt tight and if it is it is because the owners are being greedy.

    Look at the padres. They're spending like crazy, because they have a chance to win. Dodgers, same thing.

    Yes, itís hard to know for sure if JR had allowed them any further budget. If he did not, would you have rather we didnít sign Hendriks and spent the money on a starter and maybe DH?

    Yes, to be clear, i would have rather went all in on Bauer at any cost honestly. There isnt a cap and JR can afford it.

    I dont have a problem with Hahn, the issue lies with JR.

    Why is Giolito throwing meatballs with 2 strikes to every batter?

    Someone tell Giolito, the game started early today. This is not pre-game batting practice.

    When did Abreu turn into Edwin Encarnacion?

    I know it is going to sound like sacrilege, but with the glut of 1B/DH types, why donít they give Abreu a couple days off? He is looking horrible right now and maybe few days off would help.
