IMO the Sox decline can be traced back to the end of the Epstein years. Theo got lazy and when problems arose he just threw money at problems, regardless their fit on the team. Why trade for Agon with Rizzo a much cheaper option waiting in the wings, why Crawford who didn't make any sense on so many levels, Lackey etc. Let's hope that whoever is in charge builds a team, and doesn't sign the next FA just because they can. Teams win championships.
