Kenny Williams Wants to Create Frankenstein Leadoff Man

Kenny Williams defended the White Sox odd choice for a leadoff man, presumably before Dewayne Wise meagerly struck out in his first two at-bats.

"The easiest thing in the world is to say you have to go out and get a leadoff hitter, get the prototypical guy who can hit you .300 and get on base at .370, steal 50 bases," Williams said. "But when people are pressed to say where are you going to get that guy, it's 'don't worry about it. You just go get him.

"I have to go back in the lab and create that guy. Rest assured, we have been looking for and aggressively whatever those type guys are, we've asked about them and tried to get them in tow and that's no slight on Dewayne (Wise). You can't create something that's not there, so you make do."

We'll call this gamethread #2
