It is, by the amount that you can pay to sign international players. The worse teams get a higher cap to spend on signing international prospects.
I also agree with Lip that investing in more scouts and better facilities (both domestic and international) are something that the Sox can stand to improve upon. The Rangers were able to stock up on Dominican players thanks to their baseball academies. The Sox may not be able to do the same thing for a while, but I would like to see it. Paddy has done a very good job of cleaning up the mess that Wilder left, but there is still a lot there.
Just a speculation, but I wonder when teams will start investing in African countries.
