The Red Sox fell under the luxury tax threshold in 2012! Thank goodness the guys with the green eye-shades on Yawkey Way did their job—because the Sox were just $47,177 under the $178 million ceiling. Now that's counting paperclips. I feel so much better that the NOG met their fiduciary responsibilities so that they could save money. All the more resources to overpay thrirtysomething platoon players!
