I may be a little impatient here, but what exactly is Kenny doing down in Orlando? Why should he have bothered getting on the flight to go to these meetings? So far, all I have heard is how he has done nothing but picked up an option on an overweight, sub-300 OBP SS, and he has done nothing else to better our everyday positions. Everyone else is being bold, prospecting, and even making trades happen.

Where the hell is Kenny Williams? Sleeping?

He's getting drunk at the bar by himself and yelling at all the other GMs.

We're not even two full weeks into the offseason. GMs cannot offer contracts to free agents yet. Do you really care Brad Lidge got traded to a team that wasnt the Sox?

The Sox have to and will make moves. They dont have to do anything right now.

I think you're misinterpreting the meaning of these meetings. Wait until the winter meetings for the big deals to go down.

As of right now, he can't sign free agents; and he's been rumored in a ton of deals, that never fell through. You are being impatient. The offseason just started; things don't happen this quickly.

You're absolutely right on spot there. When trades happen it is usually one phone call and it's all done. Kenny picks up the phone to call Hendry and says "Jim, I'll give you Uribe for Theriot, D. Lee and Zambrano" and Hendry, without hesitation, responds "draw up the paperwork and let's get this done!"

Also, every conversation where the GM explore with each other what is and is not possible dutifully reported to the media for public dissemination.

With the GM meetings ending, I guess we can kiss goodbye to any trades in the off season.

I would demand my money back. Kenny is a slacker!

Didn't you hear? The off season is over Sunday. After that, no one can make any moves. That is why everyone is posting all of these brilliant trade ideas and rightfully ripping KW for not making moves.

Yeah, we have that killer road trip to start the season too. Remember the Tribune in October said that? Since we didn't do anything, we're definitely doomed.

Didn't you hear? They can make trades online now instead of using the phone. They can just click on the player they want and boom, it's done! It's easier and a lot more convenient! Someone needs to clue Kenny into this.

I heard they're selling All-Star SS and CFer's on EBay. Someone needs to let KW know.

C'mon everyone. The specifics of an Andy Gonzalez for Miguel Cabrera and cash deal take time to work out...even for Kenny Williams.

Maybe he can sell Uribe and Owens on EBay, which will help offset the purchases. KW, here's a hint...make sure you use "Buy It Now" so you don't get outbid!

I love the off season and the people on this board who feel they should get a personal phone call by Kenny at every move. The season just ended, hold the **** on. Get an off season hobby or something, because freaking out about what the Sox maybe doing at the meeting is not good for blood preasure.

That's a pretty big assumption by you that KW even has a phone. I mean, if he did, wouldn't he have made a few trades already?

He does have one. He calls me all the time with questions about what moves he should make and how they will play at WSI.

Well this lack of action is obviously your fault then. KW needs to preserve his precious minutes and talking to you means no minutes left for trading with other GMs.

You must be talking about a few years ago, because I have it on good faith that KW dumped his phone so people would stop eavesdropping on him at airports...

I'm confused about the title of this thread...

Does SSL live in Orlando? If not, shouldn't it the title be "Apprehension in Chicago about what KW is doing in Orlando" or simply "Apprehension in my pants" or even simpler "Nervous People Unite"?

Does someone have some inside info that KW is apprehensive? Maybe DJ can enlighten us since he seems to have KW's ear...

Well, he has recently been a little skittish about whether or not he has been tipping his cab drivers enough.

Well, then I would ask you post his questions in the form of a poll, so we an all have a say. Thanks

Whatever. K-Dub (that's what he goes by with his really good friends) just I'M'd me...he told me that Torii and Furcal will members of the White Sox before the weekend is out. All it took to get Furcal was Contreras, Garland, Gio, Danks, Floyd, Broadway, Crede, and Fields. I think he made out like a bandit.

there were only 4 GM's active in trades in orlando. this isnt the time for trades. they are just introducing themselves, ESPECIALLY since theres alot of new ones. and espressing what their needs are. trades hardly even go down at the winter meetings, and thats the biggest get together of them all. calm down, jeez.
on another note, according to MLB trade rumors (reliable, i know lol), we offered the astros ryan sweeney for chad qualls (RP), but it didn't happen. interesting.....

Really? I thought that was Tiger Woods. Kinda wonder WHY it might be Tiger, considering he's got a smoking hot swedish supermodel as a wife, but that's not KW. KW wouldn't need a boat to go on a log flume.

This is such a lie because Ken Dog called me on the batphone and told me that we were getting Torii and Aaron. He said getting Torii will be breeze, but getting Aaron will cost us Dye, Jenks, Mark Salas:?:, AJ, Owens, Boone, Fields, and Crede. Kenny said it was worth it to him as long as Aaron was back.

I think you're fibbing. The Kenster would never part ways with Boone.
