They are partners for all intents and purposes. None of them can make money without the others. They compete for players but share the vast amount of financial resources and marketing initiatives.

Hmmm, maybe proprietary software. But I can't imagine that they could claim intellectual property over mathematical formulas and calculations.

That's not what I suggested.
Regardless it would have been nice had they drafted some starting pitching...or anything of use beyond a couple of relievers from 2013-2017.

I did think of this FO's one good trade for a veteran: Jake Peter for Soria and that other pitcher.

As expected, White Sox went internally - Promoting talent evaluator Mike Shirley.

Is Mike Shirley not qualified?
