"The Sox signed six free agents this winter for a total 2021 outlay of $24 million. Throw in their decision to bring back Martin Perez, and the Sox are paying seven free agents about what the Jays will pay George Springer this year. They will actually pay three players, David Price, Dustin Pedroia, and Andrew Benintendi, more than that to not pay for them this year."
