But it also is a concern to me when the time comes for us to start buying FAs. The White Sox will never pay a FA $30 million per season, $25, or even $20.
The few times they have been aggresive, talking $12 - $15 million range it has blown up in their face (Dunn, Danks, trades for Peavy and Rios).
The Sox, like 25 or so other teams, need to produce their own stars and supplement the team with midrange FA's. It's always been that way.
