Williams hints Sox are buyers

Nothing is as it seems in baseball, especially when it comes to economics.

If everything made sense, the White Sox could follow the lead of Major League Baseball, which is running the Montreal Expos and for whom it acquired an All-Star-caliber pitcher in Bartolo Colon to help their chances in the National League East.

But White Sox general manager Ken Williams doesn't buy the argument that Montreal's aggressiveness in the trade market will make the Sox look bad if they decide to stand pat by the end of the July.

"Montreal's situation is different than ours," Williams said. "They didn't add any payroll, so it was virtually a wash on the money side of things. And as far as the players they were able to afford to give up, their [uncertain] situation heading into next year obviously allows them a little more flexibility than some other clubs."

The Sox are getting closer to that big fork in the road, the time when Williams will have to decide the franchise's immediate direction.

Should he dump soon-to-be free agents such as Ray Durham and Kenny Lofton and bring up kids like Joe Crede and Joe Borchard?

Acquire a veteran starter for a second-half run against the Twins?

Or stand pat and hope his enigmatic team comes together on its own accord?

Williams hinted the Sox are more likely to go into a buying mode than a selling one.

"The day the club came back to Chicago, the first day of the Cubs series, I met with our staff and we talked about additions more than anything else, what we could do in terms of helping the club," Williams said. "I'll leave it at that."
