Eight teams were in on Jose Abreu per his agent, Barry Praver. Five hit $60 mil mark.

Jose Abreu can opt out of contract for arbitration with #WhiteSox after three seasons. Would be under team control.
That says a lot about what teams' scouts feel about his potential. Even if he's Adam Dunn bad for the duration, this was a huge signing for us. Much better than chasing old players just to be semi-competitive. Hahn had a really terrible start to his GM tenure with some really bonehead moves, but between this and the Peavy trade things are definitely looking up.
