Adam Dunn is also willing to play DH:

New White Sox slugger Adam Dunn said he’ll do whatever is asked of him, including deferring part of his salary so the team can re-sign first baseman Paul Konerko. Dunn, who was introduced at news conference on Friday at U.S. Cellular Field, said he was willing to trade in his glove to become a designated hitter and even joked he would put on the catcher’s gear and get behind the plate.

… Dunn and catcher A. J. Pierzynski, who was officially re-signed Thursday, both deferred part of next year’s salary so the Sox culd pursue Konerko, who turned down their arbitration offer. Dunn signed a four-year, $56 million contract and will be paid $12 million next season, which goes up to $15 million in each of the final two years. Pierzynski will be paid $2 million next season and $6 million the following year.

Kenny is having a good off-season.

Kenny Williams manages to trade Scott Linebrink! [UPDATE #2]

Morosi @ FS tweets (h/t MLBTR):

That’s the deal: Scott Linebrink to Braves for RHP Kyle Cofield, sources tell FOXSports.com.

and

Braves receive cash in the Linebrink trade. Not sure how much yet.

UPDATE: MLBTR says the Sox will send only $1.5 million to Atlanta. I thought the Sox would have to send at least $3-4 million. You are a fucking genius, Kenny!

UPDATE #2: Scot Gregor says the Sox will send $3.5 million to Atlanta. That’s more believable. Still good job, Kenny.
