The White Sox are:

18th in overall payroll
4th in off season spending
6th in positive net payroll change

They're going to shoot up from 18th in the coming years, especially when it comes time to pay Giolito and Moncada. I'm guessing top 10 at some point. They'll never spend as much as the Yankees or the Cubs (because they don't have that sort of revenue) but there's no reason the team can't spend to keep their budding stars.
They've also made it clear they have more money to spend this season if the right opportunity comes along.

I am wondering if we will make a move that gives us more international bonus money to pursue Colas and others after spending $1.5 mil on Norge Carlos Vera.

Colas is not signable until he and his Japanese team resolve their differences.

Maybe we can trade Fulmer for him.
