“I don’t know what, and I don’t know when but changes need to take place,” Williams said. “Things aren’t happening that we envisioned and when they don’t happen the way you envisioned, you got to make an adjustment or two.”
“We’re not talking about tearing something down,” Williams said. “If we do something, it will still be along the lines of shuffling the deck with the expectation that we’re going to add impact guys that can help us win.”
When asked to be specific about the Sox’s woes, Williams replied: “pick your poison on a given night.” …
I’m a bit surprised by the following quote from Kenny:
“It’s still the early part of June and a lot of clubs are trying to figure their situations out and determine whether they’re in it or not in it or what kind of money they have to spend,” the GM said. “There are a lot of variables that go into the mix so even if I want to do something, it’s not always in my control. And even if something does arise, you always run the risk of, particularly in our case where there’s a lot of desirable players that people seem to want … why we can’t put it together is a mystery to me.
“But other teams seem to want our players so I have to gauge whether something that comes along sooner is better off for our mix and chance to get in it or wait and be a little patient until July when kind of all the information is in and people are bidding against one another for our players.”
I don’t remember Kenny being so blunt and say ‘I’m in selling mode.’ Usually Kenny won’t say if he’s selling or buying. Also, is the ‘I don’t know why we can’t win but our players are wanted by other teams” a dig at Ozzie?
