Anyone catch this in the Sunday Trib? Looks like his 2 sons were arrested for allegedly stealing form cars in NC. They were there for the graduation of KW's daughter.

I can put some stuff in teal here that may not be perceived as nice, especially considering the number of people who got upset when I started calling Garland Judy instead of Jon.

How ironic. His kids steal when he has been giving players away here.

They got caught with stolen stuff, and he calls it a misunderstanding. He always has told it like it was.

They should arrest KW on the grounds of a bad baseball team instead of his sons

Thanks for the link, Daver. Wonder where the Mrs. was when this all went down? NOT having a happy Mother's Day, for sure.

If KW were Bill Clinton, he'd fire Manual today to create a diversion from this story.

While this is quite unfortunate for the Williams family and really their own business, it is easy to see what kind of negative impact this would have on his ability to do his job.

It makes one wonder. I think KW is not the right guy to be GM of the Sox and he's proven that right. But I do kind of feel sorry for him. It's his "football like mentality" as he describes it that makes him overbearing and probably why he acts the way he does with clubhouse. He obviously doesn't have the emotional make up to handle the ups and downs of a baseball season. I think he may have too big of an ego and is obviously a Type A hands on personality.

I wonder what all this did for his family life. Were his two sons being arrested related to what's been going on? Does he run his household like he does the Sox (ie dumping tables) or does he take his work home with him too much when he leaves the office?

I know this sounds cheesy, but I do feel bad. It's one thing to not be good at a job and feel the pressure (and possibly lose the job), but I certainly don't wish ill will on him or his family and hope everything works out for him on the family front.

If KW were GW Bush, he'd start a war to create a diversion. :D:

You're right...he really hasn't done anything except bumble through the first half of his presidency.

If the effectiveness of KW's baseball interventions is any indication, the boys will be stealing the cars within a week.
