I'd rather use the money to extend a couple of future stars in 2015.

As for putting people in the seats, I think most would rather watch good young players develop and play .500 than run out the clock on Adam Dunn and play .500.
You think this team minus Konerko, Rios, and Peavy comes even remotely close to playing .500 baseball?
