On the surface, many Sox fans may be confused about this move and ask why team owner Jerry Reinsdorf would make this decision after Williams had a great year making personnel decisions. However, Hahn has been one o ...

Modern Day Sisyphus

Kenny Williams since beginning his tenure as Sox GM has been on a quest, a quest to find a rotation anchor, an undisputed Ace. Like Sisyphus of Greek Mythology it has seemed that Williams has been strenuously rolling a giant rock up a steep hill only to watching it roll to the bottom when he reaches that pinnacle. That rock has had different names, names like Colon, Ritchie and Wells but no matter how caref ...

Kenny Williams Does It Again

In a matter of just two days, Kenny Williams made three moves that have made the White Sox significantly better for 2011 than what we would have expected at the conclusion of 2010.  First was the signing of Adam Dunn, next was the trade of Scott Linebrink, and finally was the re-signing of A.J.

Is Ozzie’s Time in Chicago Ending?

Nothing like an epic season ending collapse to get Ozzie's mouth moving, and requesting a contract extension. The Sun-Times reports, among other things, that Ozzie was talking extension last night in Oakland. ''I never talked to them that I don't want to come back,'' Guillen said. ''First of all, I don't have the power to do it because right now they don't want to hear that s---. They don't want to hear me ...

Kenny Williams Hypocritical Message

When it comes to steroids in baseball, we are all hypocrites. No matter how tough a stance people take on the performance enhancing drugs, we all have a guy or two we are willing to forgive.

Many baseball fans get angry at a players on other teams for using PEDS, then hav ...

The first name that comes to mind is Brian Fuentes, but he was pulled back earlier ...

We all know the master plan was probably not to keep Jackson.  But it's a pretty good backup plan if you look at it the right way. Edwin Jackson has some ...
