“I think we go in remaining open-minded, as we normally do,” Williams said. “If there is something of substance to talk about or another club feels strongly that we sit down (with them), then we will.” But … “I think it will be busier after the meetings than it will be during.”
… “One thing we have focused on is our infield and outfield defense because we believe our pitching is going to be so good, really be the anchor to this club,” Williams said. “We have to back that up with some guys that can really go out and catch the ball.”
… “We’ve got an interesting dynamic because we’ve got Alex Rios who could play center field or right field, so we have the option to go with another corner guy or a center fielder or a guy who can go over and play left, because we’ve got some interchangeable parts,” Williams said. “Andruw was brought in here as support to what we think is going to be a strong asset for us – our bench. If we have to go with a younger player out there then we can back that up with a guy like Andruw or Kotsay.”
… “I think there will be some interesting pieces out there that you can take a look at and see if they fit for your club,” he said. “We’re prepared to go in with what we have. We’re not stressed at any position. We’ve got five solid starters and we’ve got bullpen pieces that have already proven themselves in the major leagues. Would we like to add to that? Yes, we absolutely would.”
