It may not be huge news nationally, but Williams has made himself in to one of the more renown GM names in baseball. It would/did definitely garner some attention. Doesn't mean he was the greatest GM, but he made his presence known to the point where most baseball fans know who was the White Sox GM. It should represent a pretty drastic change in how the organization operates.
