To Err is Herrmann

I would be shocked if the White Sox don’t add at least one or two significant pieces to start the season as a top three team. All Sox fans know that Jerry Reinsdorf will never go all out to create a World Series caliber team along the lines of the top 3-4 teams in baseball. It’s not just that he makes enough profit even in a losing season, but his remarks in July about his nine figure losses and the uncertainty around the 2021 season indicate this would not be the year for a big push anyway. The White Sox have a good chance to go deep into the postseason as it is, which is exciting. However, there must not be a significant enough payout on a World Series victory to justify more expenditures on Jerry’s part. Being a baseball fan anywhere means following economics, finance, contracts etc with the same intensity one gives to on-field performance. A weird sport to follow when you think about it.
