Sending A Message
Mr. Williams Responds
After a week of very public comments by Carl Everett, Mark Buehrle and manager Ozzie Guillen, White Sox general manager Ken Williams sat down with the media on Saturday and sent a clear message.
"When you get to a point where people start paying attention to you, that’s a good thing," Williams said. "But it can also be something that can be distracting if you let it. This past week was not a good week in terms of keeping our focus on the issues at hand.
"We should leave world politics and all the other topics that none of us are qualified to expound on, we should leave all those things alone and focus on baseball," Williams told the Chicago Tribune and several other Chicago media outlets. "We’ve got a bunch of good guys. I don’t want them to get caught up just because of one disparaging remark here or there. I know these guys. I handpicked every one of them.
"When you see something like this, it pains me, because it’s not indicative of the type of people they are."
