I could have sworn that the '01 and '02 payrolls were bottom-third.

Plus, Kenny was also handcuffed with a bad manager.

I'm just trying to point out that Kenny Williams is not as bad as some make him out to be.
In 2001 the Sox opened the season with a payroll of just over $60 mill.

In 2002 it was in the mid-50's

2003 was $52 mill.

I don't know where things ranked, but at present time the Sox aren't anywhere near bottom of the heap in payroll. And the present time is all I care about now.

BTW, you said you liked KW and that the Sox had a bad manager. Who was it who signed this manager to a contract extension????
