Default KW: No Coaching Changes

I'm surprised this has not been posted yet, and a search under "Williams" came up empty. In today's Sun-Times, Kenny Williams said in a piece written by Joe Cowley that there are no plans to replace any coaches.

That's a good idea, Ozzie. To say you don't trust Jerry Reinsdorf to the media.

I wish he'd stop talking.

Just as Emperor Nero played his fiddle as Rome burned, KW and JR are doing the same thing.

Somebody has to pay for this start and I thought for sure it would have been Walker.

Nothing like getting the offense back on track against King Felix tonight.

It is frustrating they didn't make a change already (such as firing Walker after 2006), but I don't really know what comments we could hope for at this point. If the GM says he isn't going to fire the manager we look at it as the "dreaded vote of confidence." Regardless, no GM would come out and say, "yeah, I probably am going to fire everyone if we don't win at least 5 games on the road trip" so we can't really take anything from this article.

Still, it had an interesting quote from Kenny when he fired Von Joshua:

So... what has changed, Kenny? You weren't going to watch that team underacheive all year (even though the best hitter was out), but we are seemingly giving this offense a chance to underachieve all year, just as they did last year and the year before that and the year before that and the year before that and the final three months of the year before that? I don't know, maybe he is more patient in his old age.

Nothing to see here.

Nothing to be done.

Kenny is all bark and no bite.
He loves to appear and sound like a tough guy yet his actions say a completely different thing.

I don't know how anyone can question this. Ozzie and Kenny and Greg Walker and Rowand and Politte and Hermanson and Willie Harris and Shingo and Widger and Cotts and Timo and El Duque and Frank Thomas and Crazy Carl won a title in 2005!!!!!!

Ozzie is the same way. The personal styles are different, but they both talk a good game and don't follow through.
