White Sox officials told CBSSports.com’s Danny Knobler that owner Jerry Reinsdorf presented a bleak economic picture at the start of the offseason and that the club is "comfortable going young."
GM Ken Williams elaborated on the point: "We have to be cautious, if for no other reason that so we don’t have to play all day games because we can’t afford the electricity. This is such a volatile time, and people are going to look at their discretionary spending."
It sounds like the Southsiders won’t be chasing any of the major free agents that are still on the market. Their biggest move this offseason was the signing of 35-year-old Bartolo Colon.
