Reinsdorf keeping the people that he is able to control has been admirable to ownership because of ever increasing team worth and profit. He is doing exactly what ownership wants, making money for them. This club is being run by a very smart money man. With the lease the Sox got, they probably will someday rebuild prior to 2026 but not before their tv contract expires, 2016? The mediocre style they have been putting on the field will get a better tv contract than a rebuild now. Spending a lot of money to try to get a perennial playoff club is a gamble that does not have to taken. Busness as usual is keeping them all fat.
