White Sox Quote of the Day: Ken Williams

Kenny on trading pitching:

[Phil Rogers]

"With regard to starting pitching, quite frankly, unless we're able to improve the '07 club, unless something makes us better now and also gets us some youth, positions us for the future, we're not going to do a deal."

Rumors from the same article:

While one Mets executive discounted reports of their interest in Javier Vazquez (a favorite of general manager Omar Minaya from their time together in Montreal), the rumors of a possible White Sox-Mets trade persist. Ditto possibilities for the Sox and the Rangers, who are interested in Vazquez and Mark Buehrle. There's the making for a monster deal between these teams, with Sox center fielder Brian Anderson and Rangers reliever Akinori Otsuka among the names in play. The White Sox like pitching prospects John Danks and Nick Masset, and the Rangers reportedly would part with the previously untouchable Danks to land a starter they could control through 2008. ... Sox GM Ken Williams on Thursday about trading pitching: "With regard to starting pitching, quite frankly, unless we're able to improve the '07 club, unless something makes us better now and also gets us some youth, positions us for the future, we're not going to do a deal." A trade with Texas, say Vazquez or Garcia for Otsuka (32-for-36 in saves, 2.11 ERA), Danks and Masset might qualify.
