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

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????
