[Kenny] Williams mentioned assistant general manager Rick Hahn and Ryan Gleichowski, Scott Podsednik’s representative, continued to have contractual conversations. Podsednik’s camp is pushing for a two-year deal, taking a chance that the White Sox one-year offer still will be available if the two-year deal never materializes.
As far as rating his optimism for a potential Podsednik return, Williams didn’t have a definitive feeling in either direction.
“Early on, we made no secret that we felt there was a place for Pods and we made overtures to that effect,” said Williams. “They expressed to us how he wanted to test the market and we respect his right to do that, but we told them that we were going to continue moving down the road. We don’t allow any player to hold us hostage and wait around for them to get on their timetable. We operate on our own timetable.
“Obviously, we still have roster spots to fill and he’s still out there. So, if he has a sincere desire in terms of fit and in terms of dollars that match up, it’s time to get serious.”
