"Three years ago, the White Sox launched an aggressive rebuild by trading Chris Sale, Adam Eaton, and, eventually, Jose Quintana. They’ve developed some of their own talent alongside of the players they acquired in those deals. The next step, however, demands more than just “being in on” players who sign for market value somewhere else. The White Sox have to use money to buy wins, have to go out and get the four- and five-win players who will supplement the wins they will be getting, at laughably low prices, from the likes of Giolito and Jimenez and Anderson and Kopech."
