Kenny Williams was asked if the Sox started negotiations yet with the agents for Mark Buehrle and Paul Konerko on potential long term deals. This was his answer...

"I hesitate to give anyone timetables about our dealings contractually with our players,'' said Williams, who is in Tucson, Ariz., for the GM meetings. "These things are done with as little fanfare as possible to ensure that neither side feels any undue pressure or justice when that gets out publicly and influences one way or another.''

That's "Stanford English" meaning "we like to screw over our players in private, that way the fans and media don't get as upset with us..."

LOL

As hard as this may seem to say, this guy makes me appreciate Dick Jauron.

I have to disagree with the sentiment of others on this thread, I think Lip Man is dead on with this statement.

Oh yeah, it cant mean they simply prefer to negotiate without the interference of the media. How silly of me to think that.

You know I blame JR for this, instead of going out and getting an experienced GM when RS stepped down, once again he feels he can always reinvent the wheel. KW may someday turn out to be a good GM, but it will be at the expense of destroying this organization to learn.

What makes it even more difficult is that when the budget is as tight as a mouses rear you can't afford to many gaffes on talent evaluation. Brian Cashman can afford to miss with Raul Mondesi or Rondell White, why? Because he can turn around and sign Jason Giambi or Godzilla from Japan and everyone forgets how awful those two were.

We bring in Choice and the nameless pitcher from the pirates and it (along with other stupid moves) destroys what should have been a good season.

Why won't he sell!!!

I posted this before but nobody read it I guess. He was banned or put under moderation, either way he will not be back here.
