Why are all Sox message boards obsessed with "saving money". With the new rules there is a cap on what you can give draft picks and foreign free agents, and going over carries big penalties for the future. The Sox aren't going to sign the huge free agents, since A. They never do and B. Just about every one that gets close to or 9 figures on the free market seems to be dead weight pretty quickly. Hahn said they had money to ADD this season, so they aren't going to be going broke, and they have money coming off the books and another $25 million from the national TV contract to play with next year. Any move now that includes players on the team that are signed for next year should be focused on talent coming back, not financial savings.
