Kenny Williams on the Jose Contreras trade:

”Here was a guy who pitched us to a championship [in 2005] and he was being relegated to the bullpen [with the Sox]. I don’t think that was a way to pay him back in a free-agent year.”

and on the Jim Thome trade:

”I didn’t think there was any way in hell Jim would accept a deal to the National League, so I didn’t even bother him before the game. After speaking with him after the game, I was surprised he actually wanted the opportunity — not that I’m surprised because the man has always expressed to me that personal accolades are not as important as ultimately getting a ring.”
