White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen vented about his offense yesterday, saying that he expects GM Kenny Williams to do something about it by Tuesday. But when the Chicago Tribune spoke to Williams, he was much calmer than his manager.
The Trib’s Mark Gonzales says A.J. Pierzynski, Jermaine Dye, Carlos Quentin, Orlando Cabrera, and Alexei Ramirez are probably safe. A Tribune poll asks Sox fans what should be done: Fire hitting coach Greg Walker, bench Nick Swisher, trade for a hitter, drop Paul Konerko and Jim Thome in the lineup, or clone Carlos Quentin.
Realistically the Sox could probably wait Thome and Swisher’s slumps out and give Konerko a break by putting him on the DL. Josh Fields might be able to come up and help. And Walker probably becomes the "sacrificial lamb," as South Side Sox puts it.
