Santana was the least of the wasted money.

Just added to the tab. Him, Alonso and Jay, you are halfway to one of the years they couldn't afford Machado, and that is before investment.

Assuming Manny gets a shot at the rotation now.

Happy for him. He has earned it.

Not sure how you come to that determination.  $4.1M to Santana, and he provided significant negative value in his few starts.  Jay has also provided nothing, but he was a little less $3M.  Alonso is at least a major league baseball player, even though he's been pretty terrible so far. 

In total, the Sox are paying those three $16.1M.  In they guanantted that to MM, maybe he takes it.  With taxes, $266.1M over 8 may have been enough to avoid those Cali taxes at 10/$300.

Very happy.  Hope the money is not guaranteed.  Paying a portion of the $4 mil isn't bad,wasting all of it, well, cash in the shredder.

My understanding is the $4.1M was guaranteed as soon as he was called up.

Oh, I completely agree, and don't forget a good chunk to Nova as well.  It is definitely money in the furnace.  Just the smallest pile, but still wasted money indeed.

Maybe if they had just pitched of "Manny" & "Machado" as 2 different guys each making $17.5m/yr old moneybags Jerry would have signed off in a heartbeat.

I wasn't considering value at all, since winning isn't really a thing that matters this year.  None of the offseason signings will add anything to the team when it matters.  At best they are all zero value.  I was looking at just plain dollars.  Honestly, I thought it was less than the 4.1, I was thinking he was like 1.5, maybe I switched the numbers in my head.  

Either way you are right.  Waste of money.  Terrible signing.  Trend more than exception.

I actually enjoy Jerry having his money lit on fire at this point.  It's not like he's going to spend it on legit upgrades anyways so fuck it...burn it all.

Anyone with half a brain could have seen that he never should've been activated from Charlotte. 

Or even given any sort of contract by the White Sox. 

Just terrible scouting.  My goodness.

As long as it doesn't affect our Value Sundays.   

What a fucked up franchise this is.

I mean, rolling the dice on Santana wasn't an awful idea.  We needed pitching depth.  He was hurt most of last year.  He pretty good in 16 and 17.  Its the fact that they paid him $4.1M.  If it was $1M or $1.5M, so what.  I mean its not my money.  But when you add it up the sum of the $4M here, $8M here, $3M here, and $9M here for a bunch of garbage, its just so head scratching.
