Their farm system was one of the shallowest in baseball coming into the 2011 campaign, so there aren’t any immediate reinforcements to propel the ChiSox back into contention.

The Chicago White Sox Are Rebuilding, Sort Of, But Not Really

You have to hand it to Kenny Williams, he really doing... something. With his latest move, he has given the White Sox rotation a healthy dose of stability by locking up lefty John Danks for five years at what is believed to be $65 million.  That is a perfectly reasonable amount to pay a 26-year old lefty who has proven to be durable and has generally been consistently good, though...
