I pretty much agree with your point. But, IMO, don't think it's accurate to compare the White Sox to the Pirates' (or Royals') perpetual rebuilding efforts. Those other teams are limited (whether by choice or not) to low payrolls, which the White Sox (while not spending like Detroit or Boston) are not.
