Merkin:

“We’ve got to play good within our division,” said reliever Scott Linebrink, who gave up three runs over 1 1/3 innings. “We played a couple of good teams well, but we have to continue that against the division, especially if we’re going to come out on top in this thing.”

Why is this POS allowed to talk? Shut your damn mouth Brikey.

What in the world did Kenny see in this wreck and gave him a 4-year deal? I remember looking at his declining ratios (HR, K, BB, K/BB) at the time of the signing and screaming what a bloody mistake that was.

That’s why he is holding on to Konerko, Jermaine Dye, Bobby Jenks, Octavio Dotel, and Scott Linebrink. Williams still has a month before the trade deadline to make decisions.
