On my way home from work I heard both interviews during the Mcneil show.

Williams didn't have much to say; Anybody else notice he is crabby most of the time? I suppose that's normal behavior for an embarrassed, over matched G.M.

Foulke was cordial, said he will miss Chicago a lot, and the fans. He said he is looking forward to going to an organization that does things a little different. Overall, he said there was no problem between him and the powers that be, and that he was shocked but not surprised.

He said Jon Garland will be a stud; just give him time. He thinks the clubhouse is a large mix; a lot of seperate groups.

If someone posted this, I apologize.

We lost a classy, tough team guy today. This trade will haunt us just like the Ritchie trade.

Williams said we got Koch "tied up for 3 years and Foulke is a FA next year". Its amazing that he admits Valentine will be a good player like the other 2 were throw ins.

After trading a guy...very very few GMs would go on record and say Player X is going to be awful thats why we dealt him....so I dont see whats so amazing as to KW saying Valentine will be good...thats what he is supposed to say...its like a team in a playoff hunt saying to take it one day at a time
