This is a great article on the White Sox west. I didn't realize Billy Beane and Kenny Williams were friends. I always thought Beane spent all his time trying to rip off and ridicule our GM.

If I were Billy Beane, I'd consider Kenny Williams my best friend too...

As long as Beane has .250/.350/.450 guys who can play four positions and are signed cheap for long term, who he wants to trade for nothing but prospects, Kenny will love him.

You are quickly becoming Hangar. Your routine is so ridiculous that it is almost a caricature of yourself. Honestly, I halfway think you are a Kenny supporter and putting on this routine to mock the non-supporters.

You're spending too much time at WSI. :redneck

Seriously, if they didn't like each other, why would they continue making deals with one another?

Well, KW and Beane are the only two baseball GMs who actually played in the majors (however briefly). It's not surprising that they're friendly.

You're closer than you think.

I like Kenny Williams. I think he's a good general manager. I don't feel he should be fired.

I just disagree with where he sees the team right now. Kenny obviously feels we'll be playing baseball in October. I don't feel that way. So I'm critical of the moves he's made. Because I don't feel that we're a "tweak" away.

I also believe he was taken in the Swisher trade. Though I doubt I need to continue to give my reasoning for that.

He became a minor league free agent and the A's signed him this offseason.

I predict DLS never plays in the majors. What the hell, it's more likely than him ever sniffing the hall.

Well, since they are such good buds, maybe Beane will give us first shot at Joe Blanton.

That would give us a legitimate shot at the division and maybe more.
