Dyck @ CT:

White Sox general manager Ken Williams said “it’s quite possible” the White Sox would have a first baseman by Wednesday — and that it would not be Paul Konerko.

Williams said negotiations with Konerko and agent Craig Landis were at an impasse and that “at this point we have no choice” but to explore other options.

“All I can say is we’ve got meetings with other guys’ representatives (Tuesday night) with the idea in mind (to) get a deal done,” Williams said, adding that “you can’t stop the train” once it leaves the station. …

Cowley in multiple tweets:

Source: “I talked to Paulie last night and he said the Sox were his priority unless they made an offer that disrespected him.” … Sox will also now look to add a reliever. The PK ship is now sailing. … KW felt like it was almost done, but now it fell apart. They are meeting with reps for other options tonight. “The train keeps moving.” … Big changes in PK talks.

Garfein in multiple tweets:

KW: “We have meetings with other guys representatives tonight with the mindset to try and get a deal done.” PK your move. … KW on Konerko: “I was very hopeful coming down here. I’m less hopeful now.” … KW will hold meetings tonight with other representatives. Doesn’t mean Konerko talks are done, but Sox need to cover themselves. … Kenny says he’s turning the page. He’s not pessimistic about PK, but he’s no longer optimistic. … Kenny Williams says talks with Konerko aren’t going well. He’s moving on to plans B and C.

And Heyman @ SI tweets:

konerko’s agent is pressing beyond where chisox had planned. but theres still pretty decent optimism for deal.
