Chuck Garfien @ CSN:

“If (Jerry Reinsdorf) gave me $30 million dollars right now, I’m not going to spend it on one guy. Sorry White Sox fans,” Williams said. “But I tell you what, I’m going to take that $30 million and I’m going to distribute it around. My team is going to be better as a whole than it is with one player who might get hurt. Then you’re done. Sorry, that’s just me. And that’s no disrespect to a future Hall of Famer, first ballot, one of the greatest players in history.”

Phil Rogers on the Albert Pujols for Ryan Howard rumor

Rogers:

Part of the proposition is that Howard is from St. Louis. So, essentially, is Mark Buehrle. How about this, if we’re throwing names against a wall — Buehrle, Carlos Quentin and prospects for Pujols? Tony La Russa, who earlier this spring said he could picture himself working for Jerry Reinsdorf in a non-managerial capacity, could then follow Pujols to Chicago.

Chris DeLuca:

”High and inside — hit him or knock him off the plate,” Buehrle said Monday. ”Hopefully, he charges the mound.” ”Whatever you throw the guy, he’s going to hit it,” Buehrle said in all seriousness. ”The softer you throw, maybe he won’t hit it as far.”
