That's just great.They get a guy with a career 954 OPS against the Twins.That 30 win advantage is really starting to evaporate.

... and they want to upgrade the bullpen too

The good news for Sox fans is that the team still hasn’t even topped its previous record payroll, however. There isn’t a name among the best remaining relievers that the ChiSox can’t fit into their budget — and that’s all the more true if owner Jerry Reinsdorf is willing to push spending levels to new heights as he strives to emerge from the long-running rebuild, as one would expect. The White Sox’ offseason moves to date have already made the AL Central race much more interesting, and it seems a few more additions could be on the horizon.

White Sox sign Steve Cishek.

Smart move and money by CWS. A move I would have liked by MN instead of Romo.

Remember when people were snickering about the Sox making moves earlier in the offseason?

I also like the 6 year extension of Luis Robert, this after the 6 year deal to Eloy Jimenz last year. Nice to see their FO show some confidence in what they are doing. Since the Twins FO didn't sign the impact players they thought of signing it would be nice if they would sign the future impact players they have to deals. But I get it, there is a risk involved....
