Oh come on, the Yankees and now the Dodgers are in another stratosphere, nobody competes with them in terms of money, that's silly, and considering the NYY and LA markets are both larger than Chicago, that makes a lot of sense. FWIW, though, right now the Sox's estimated payroll for 2013 is $1 M less than the Red Sox's and $30 M more than the Cubs. So it actually looks like they're fulfilling your wish.
