October 24, 2000 - Ken Williams is named the new G.M. replacing the retiring Ron Schueler. Williams, a former Sox player, would bring passion and heart to the position. He also wasn’t afraid to take risks, no matter how many times they failed. He eventually would create a World Series champion in 2005.

Williams got off to a very rocky start, but with perseverance he came through. Frank Lane, Ed Short, Roland Hemond and Larry Himes were all talented but failed to grab the big prize. Williams did, and we're all more than grateful. Nevertheless I feel his biggest challenges lie ahead. The 2006 were built to win now, and I'm less than impressed with the talent on the farm. Our GM worked his butt off after winning a WS and still things didn't work out. Hopefully next year will be different. After decades of struggle I could get used to winning.
