Kenny on the Iguchi trade:
Since arriving at Charlotte, Richar has shown off his offensive potential at the top of the order. Richar hit .346 in 32 games with the Knights, posting a .400 on-base percentage and a .556 slugging percentage. He also produced five home runs and drove in 15. According to Williams, Richar either will be a top-of-the-order hitter with the White Sox or provide the team with that double burst of speed at the bottom. Williams sounded excited to test Richar before the September call-up period, but he also wanted to let Richar's specific skills speak for themselves on the field.
"Our Minor League people and the guys that have been on rehab, the [Scott] Podsedniks of the world and [Darin] Erstads, have communicated their feelings about how good this kid is. I even hesitate to say such things, because all that does, he picks up the newspaper or hears the radio, and that puts a little more pressure on him. I don't want to do that. Let's just say we're going to like seeing him out here and evaluating him."
