UPDATE: The Sox can still re-sign Jenks. He’s a free-agent now.
UPDATE #2: Kenny won’t close the door:
As far as Jenks, Williams wouldn’t close the door on him completely, but not at the price Jenks would have received in arbitration.
“Bobby Jenks brought a World Series to Chicago and I will never forget that,” Williams said. “And I haven’t closed the door on that. All it says today is with the dollars it will bring in an arbitration hearing we cannot go there. The message I have to Sox fans and to Bobby Jenks is he gave us everything he had. I’m proud of his growth as a person, a player and as a dad. I wish the best for him if indeed he does end up somewhere else.”
