The White Sox executive VP claimed the changes were to bring a winning formula back to Chicago. I'd say getting rid of a guy who hit just .207 with 12 homeruns and 44 RBIs is a better way to rediscover that formula.
So I guess mission accomplished and you get $13 million back. Well play White Sox.
As for LaRoche, how do you leave $13 million on the table? It's for one year and yes you've probably made a ton of money.
This isn't one or two million we're talking about.
