Maybe I'm naive, but I think he will sign with the team that offers the most money, regardless of who is friends with whom.

You're not being naive at all.
Anyone who thinks he will chase his friend is the one being naive.

All $$$ equal, the Sox should have the upper hand because of the comfort of playing with 2 other guys from his home land and a Spanish Speaking manager. That's just how I feel.

But again, that's assuming equal bid.

Talked to multiple sources 2day who say #Cardinals $ offer to Luis Robert is significant. But, feels drawn to #WhiteSox. Could go either way

True, but the Cardinals are a great, winning franchise who play in a new ballpark that's always filled.

He should take the highest bid, and I hope it's the Sox.

That's a good sign, though I can show you photos of Jeremiah Tilmon and Eric Gordon wearing Illini caps.

Per Ken Rosenthal's twitter: Sources: #WhiteSox closing in on Luis Robert. Deal expected to be more than $25M.
