Sheehan On Kenny


This is an excerpt from his lates newsletter. Subscription info at the link/title. "I’m fascinated with Williams, who started his reign as White Sox GM with some terrible trades, then became a savvy collector of pitching with some ability to win minor deals. Williams taught me that being a GM is a bit like being a player, where you can become better over time, improve, the same way a player can learn the strike zone or develop power or perfect a new pitch. It’s one reason why I like to see owners hire GMs with low profiles who have some upside in the role rather than retreading ones just for their experience. Williams isn’t a bad GM; he’s an above-average GM who had a bad winter. It happens. The idea that his job should be in jeopardy is a bit silly."
