Kenny Williams held court today for about 40 minutes. A full report on his comments:

KW on next year's lineup: 'We’re looking at who deserves to be asked back. Because this is not White Sox baseball in no way, shape or form.'

More empty words from Kenny Williams - which is what I have come to expect over the last 5 years. Are they going to not ask Alexei back and eat the $20M they still owe him? GMAB. And if they don't ask a bunch of the bad players back, who is going to take their place? It sounds like we don't have much in the way of MLB-ready position player talent in our system and I doubt the Sox are going on a FA spending spree this winter.

White Sox Baseball
# of teams with a longer playoff drought = 3:
San Diego (2006), Miami (2003), Seattle (2001)

# of teams with fewer playoff appearances since 1995 = 5:
Kansas City* (2), Toronto** (1), Miami (2), Washington (2), Milwaukee (2)

# of Sox seasons in the this decade that were arguably dismal failures = 4:
2011, 2013, 2014, 2015

Conclusion: Blame Sox fans for not showing up to enough games

* back to back AL Champs, WS Champs
** advanced to ALCS this year
