Kenny Williams Ready To Deal

This is going to be an incredible offseason, I just know it.  This is going to be a hot stove season for the ages.  White Sox GM Kenny Williams seems ready to dive right in, starting with the GM meetings on Monday.

Interesting notes from the above-linked Mark Gonzales article:

  • Josh Fields' position for 2008 will be revealed shortly, which seems to indicate a trade of Joe Crede on the horizon.  Fields will end up at third base or left field next year.
  • Outfielders Brian Anderson and Ryan Sweeney may be shopped.  Anderson is doing a nice job talking his way out of Chicago, and Williams notes that Anderson must be "disappointed over the opportunities he hasn't maximized."  Ouch.  Maybe the Marlins will take a flier.
  • Gonzales throws down the Crede for Johnny Damon idea I've been pushing here repeatedly.  This idea is spreading!

Haha...I still wouldn't like it. Sure it makes the team better, but at too high a financial price. It's more of an MVP Baseball 2005 type deal...but I guess you could say that about everything we throw out here. It just seems Crede could be traded for a prospect or reliever and then sign an outfielder.

Tim, that was the most enthusiastic opening to a story I have ever seen on here. Atta boy, i am ready to go as well. WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOo

Kenny Williams seems to help this site out a lot.

I couldnt agree with bravesbeast more! I'm so ready for the season between seasons to start! Let the rumors flow and let the trades begin!

Guys, the season's already started; the trades have already begun. If you didn't notice, Detroit and Atlanta kicked it off last week....

mraver we know, but that was not evening the tip of the iceberg, i cannot wait for the jesse orasco comeback story in march

kenny williams is finally ready to deal? He is only like 5 months too late

I repeat, KW will NOT deal Crede for Damon straight up, even with cash included.

Sounds more like a Twins fan wet dream than an actual rumor.

I predict Crede to Boston for Crisp.

Then Lowell signs with the Yankees.

I hope the White Sox start clean. Trade away Konerko, Garland, Contreras, Dye, Crede, Pierzynski, Thome, and every other veteran player. This team cannot contend with just a few minor tweaks, and they dont have the prospects to make big moves. Retool this team completely like the Marlins. I'm sure Konerko would get a huge bounty from a team like the Angels, and just about every player i listed would have solid to good value considering the free agent market.

I hope kw goes after A-rod............. We need an impact bat in the middle of that order and it would send a great messege to the fans!!
